I made this chest last year using plans from Popular Woodworking.
I used Sapele wood, and birdseye maple veneer.

Looks fantastic! You chose the veneer over solid wood for the panels due to cost or due to concerns over wood movement?

Thanks for the nice comments!
I used veneer on mdf board for stability, wood movement concerns. The original Stickley design uses solid wood, but the designer of this chest suggested the veneer and mdf to avoid cracking.
