This project was an 18th C flatware chest copied from one in Colonial Williamsburg. The material is cherry except for the lid which is Pomelle Sapele. I think the lid blended exceptionally well with the cherry. The base and chest are 2 seperate pieces. The chest has drawers lined with red felt. I thought the lid was rather plain so I comissioned a coworker to paint a federal style eagle on the underside. The eagle was a great touch and well executed. The base has two pull out candle trays.
