Thank you for the nice comments! Marter1229, I am afraid to use it. We keep it in the living room with just a lamp and small chest, but I don’t let anyone puts drinks or dishes or fingerprints on it. heh.

I really like this project, and your blog. I spent a long time checking it out. This was a project worthy of FWW publication. I wondered how you made templates for the project, without de-constructing the original?

Thanks so much everyone. Bradford, I had a photo in a book that included the basic dimensions—height, width, and length. I also took photos of the original but was not able to get too close to it because it was behind glass. Based on the dimensions I had from the book and the faraway photos I took, I tried my best to come up with the other sizes and shapes.
