This chest was built by the Madison Woodworkers Guild members for a 1 year old who recently moved into a new Habitat for Humanity House. The Madison Horizons Rotary Club donated materials, and ten members or so did the labor. The chest used the plans that Michael Peckovich of Fine Woodworking had published a few years back.
The chest is solid cherry, with Maple drawers and is finished with 6 coats of Waterlox oil. Our guild had previously done kitchen cabinets for Habitat and thought that this would be easier. Boy were we wrong!! Hand cut dovetails and lots of drawer fitting took a while. In any case the young man got a nice chest, and I would encourage others to consider working for this very worthwhile cause.
