Too pretty to put jewelry in. Tools only :) I LOVE the proud drawer dividers. I’m going to steal that while it’s fresh in my mind. Thanks!

That is an outstanding chest.
I love the drawers handles. It really enhance it and complement the inlay.
The “good stuff” also brought up the wood grain nicely.

Spoken like a bunch of tool lovin’ guys…
@ Sergio as I recall, we had a positive and negative ( cut out ) wood pattern; the neg was clamped to the drawer front and I used a plunge router to remove the layer ( 1/4 ” ? ) of ash. The pos was used to create the actual inlayout of sapele. I believe that involved a straight edge router bit around the perimeter. The resulting inlay was close to perfect…didn’t need any filler. Thanks for asking!

Very nice. I like the contrast in wood colors. They complement each other nicely.

Really nice cabinet. I love the ash, which I am presently milling for flooring in my den.

I’m glad you mentioned that, DJ. I keep forgetting how much I like ash. What’s not to like with that beautiful linear regular grain. I also like the heft; I bet this little chest is a weighty one.
