This chest was the result of my friend asking me to make a large chest for their son & future daughter-in-law’s wedding. My mind went blank at first (normal for me) and then I thought of solid walnut with an inlay of birdseye maple which is enscribed appropriatly (carved). All joinery, lid, box and skirt, are dovetailed using a leigh D4 jig as it allows me the most flexibility of spacing groups of dovetails and also has no limitations as to length of stock. The chest is 42” X 19” X 21”.
