Beautiful chest. It looks like it matches whatever piece is in the backround behind it. Are the drawers fake, and the top opens?? More pictures please!!

That is so very nice. :D I love the fact that it is upholstered… so many of us woodworkers can’t or won’t do that. It’s a nice, and comfortable, touch!

I think you out did yourself. Really like the way the knots just happen to fall where they did. Great design

Anyone wishing to make one of these chest, for their wife,daughters or girlfriends here are the planes. It make an excellent Christmas gift. All it takes is a long weekend and 125.00 in material. Better than buying something made in China. Appreciated a lot more and something that will last forever instead of 6 months. Thanks Joe

RT, that is a very nicely done piece of furniture. Congratulations.

That’s awesome. It’s right from my imagination. Where can I get a higher-resolution version of the plans? The isometric image is too small to read.

Thanks for sharing.
