I made this from a set of plans in Woodsmith magazine. The bottom was pretty simple, but those end pieces on the top . . . The drawer is luan (aka Philipine mahogany), the rest of it is quarter-sawn white oak. Quarter inch QSWO plywood on the panels. Shellac to finish.

Great job. I have the plans for that chest saved, waiting on the second grandson to find someone to get hitched to. I made the one that you can get from Rockler, but I like the looks of this one better.
