I obtained the basic plan for this piece from PlansNow.com and made a few alterations. First, I made the legs taper toward the bottom instead of getting thicker toward the bottom. Second, I made the top out of 5 boards glued up and joined with biscuits. I then beveled the underside of the top to show a 1/2” edge instead of a 3/4” edge. I also used solid wood on the side and back panels instead of plywood. The chest is made of white ash except for the drawer bottom which is 3/16” birch ply and the bottom lining of the chest which is 1/4” cedar tongue-in-groove 3 1/2”wide pieces. The finish is 2 coats of Minwax English Chestnut stain with 2 coats of Minwax Satin Polyurethane.
