This chest was designed for a customer with sets of earrings. The woods used are Wenge and Zebrawood. The drawer sides and interior work are constructed of ash. All the liners are black microsuede. The overall dimensions are 13 3/4 Wide x 11 1/2 Deep x 13 1/8 Tall. The drawers are 1” deep.

In Drawer A (top drawer) she wanted the earrings to be displayed with microsuede covered foam to set her earrings in.

Drawer B is divided in thirds, with the middle third having a ring roll.

Drawers C & D have interlocking dividers with 32 spaces.

Drawer E has adjustable dividers that slide to where you want them and are held in place by friction.

Drawer F is open area and is 2 1/2” deep.

We designed this chest totally online.

that Wenge’s supercool with its crazy zig-zagging grain. I’ve always loved both Wenge and small-drawered cabinets. This one’s a really nice one.

So very cool in many ways! First off I really like the wood combination on this piece. Well done on what you did with the legs as well. Definitely two thumbs up on this little jewel.

This is one of a kind. Congrats. Well thought and well done. It looks perfect to me – good and nice joints, nice color and wood contrasts, clever storage details and elegant legs and pulls. Hat’s off! Thanks so much for sharing.
