Very nice looking piece. What material did you use to line the inside?

Curious? How did you do the bottom drawer to include the legs when opening? BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF WORK

This is a really nice piece and I like the hidden drawer. This adds a “surprise” to these cases.
Thanks for sharing.

Thank you. This was a Sweet 16 birthday present for my daughter. I got the plans for this from Norm and The New Yankee Workshop. This is the first and only (so far) plans from that show. The hidden drawer runs on a couple of strips of ash. The hidden drawer was made seperately. The box actually sits on its sides which are hidden until its opened. Inside I used just regular red felt glued on with a spray adhesive. I have more pictures of this and other projects on myspace.com/midnightowlrob .

Very nice. I’m sure you daughter will treasure it always! How much more of that recycled ash do you have laying around? ;)

I built a pair of these for Christmas presents. Fun project. Yours are nice. I’m thinking I should not have done the sliding dovetails on the shelves.
