My wife ask me to build this chest for her mothers 70th birthday, which was 10/23/10.
I just finished and gave to her for her 71st.
The movement with the ballarina was on back order for four months and just having shop time always slows my production time down.
Walnut and maple.

Pre-glued felt from Rockler, peel backing and very carefully stick.

Very nice. Thanks for the post. I currently have a chest in the works and seeing the interior boarder on the top really helps me out.
