I recently completed a kist (or blanket chest). The carcase wood is Curly Marri, with Jarrah for the base. The Curly Marri was extraordinarily difficult to work with hand tools, which were used for 90% of this build.
One of the features of this kist is my continuing interest in secret drawers …
The drawer has 1 1/4” (30mm) of internal depth. This should be plenty for a thick book or several magazines.
Here is a link to the full build on my website …
