You certainly have many talents. This is not my taste (a little too “different”), but the workmanship looks superb. It would be interesting to see the setting in which this chest will reside.

(Our first thought was that it was a chest to contain rings but that would be A LOT of rings!)

That chest is simply beautiful!

One question though; how did you cut all those circles? Did you use a scroll saw?

tool_junkie, They are individual pieces, drilled a hole, cut’em out, assemble them together.

Thanks everyone!

Les – that is really cool – where do they use it with the granite top? is it for use in a bathroom for towels or other wet application needing a durable top?

DrDirt, I think this was for the dinning room and just used for linens.

Amazing workmanship! I really like the placement and size of the rings; however if I look at it too long…...
