This small chest is a very popular design with my friends who knit, sew, tie flies, and scrapbook. It is made from local black walnut and cottonwood for strength, beauty, and light weight. The lift out tray is perfect for sewing notions or little plastic boxes of fly tying supplies. The bottom compartment is big enough to lay a pattern book down in, yet still get your fingers around it to pick it up again. The light weight of cottonwood was very useful here to keep the weight low, as many of my friends who use them are in their 70’s and 80’s.
