Here is a toolchest that I recently built along the lines of one shown by Tom Fidgen on his website and in his book. I tried to e-mail photos to him but don’t have a current e-mail address – hope he sees this.

The toolchest has six marquetry panels showing the six states where I have lived (and when) and did some form of woodworking. Got the urge to incorporate marquetry after a course at Marc Adams about a year ago.

I tried to add additional photos but site wouldn’t accept. Need to learn how to.

You added one picture OK – just keep doing it again, up to 5 times.

Then we can see more of your super chest!
