This is a silverware chest made on commision for a friend of my wife’s. I adapted the plan from a much smaller jewelery box plan I found on-line. The chest and drawers are 1/2” maple plywood (Actually pre-finished drawer panels!) with cherry trim. Each drawer has custom-fitted slots for the silverware and is lined with tarnish resistant silvercloth. It was a challenge to scale up the measurements from the original plan.

-- I've yet to find a nice piece of wood I couldn't mess up.

I remember that jewelry box plan (Wood Mag?), I think. You did a great job upsizing it into a beautiful silverware storage chest.

That’s just awesome. I love the simple, but effective holding slots for the heads. Aesthetically it looks fantastic , as does the quality.
