After being asked to make a cutlery canteen for a wedding gift I came up with this design based on a classic chest of drawers. It was made from some old Oak floorboards I had in the shop and has been given an oil and wax finish. I hand routed out the positions for the serving set in the lid and the logo which are cut into pieces of MDF and then all of the insides were flocked. The most testing part was making the drawer fronts as I cut them in half before cutting the finger joints and then glued the fronts back on and routing a cove around the perimiter of them. All of the knobs were made by turning them on the lathe and the side handles were made with a router and a home made jig to hold them. My wife is in one of the shots to give some idea of scale. Thanks for looking.
