The Dr. White’s chest is a Thos. Moser design. Follow my video blog to see construction techniques. This case was slightly modified by cutting legs into the sides and applying different trim at the top. The case is solid cherry with poplar the secondary wood. The finish is oil/wax on the exterior and shellac on the interior. The exterior also has a liberal coat of paste wax that was power buffed. Sun exposure will change the color of the chest to the same as the dresser in the first picture. I would consider increasing the case depth from 18 1/2” to 20” if I were to build another one.

I have enjoyed watching you build this piece. The final product looks great. You’ll be able to enjoy it since it stays with you, plus I love how cherry ages. Great job.

Thanks! Cherry is my go-to wood precisely because of the way it ages. Writing the blog was extra work, but it’s also a type of hobby. I’m glad this project stayed with me since it’s a more current work of mine…

Very nice – now I know that the Thomas Moser designs can be replicated. One of these days I’m going to make the dresser that goes with our Bungalow bedroom pieces.
