This is a flatwear chest made for our daughter. We gave her a set of flatwear for a Christmas gift and the first respose was “Dad I now need a Chest to store it in (hint, hint).” So I got out the maple and cherry and proceeded. The material is 5/8 thick. It is 7 inches high, 16 inches wide, and 11 1/2 inches deep. The corners are 45 degree miters with dovetails insertd to help reenforce the joints. The finish is Watco natural oil and several coats of wipeon poly. The drawer is maple with maple 1/4 ply for a bottom.
The lid lift and drawer pull are shop made. The utensil holder is not. It was purchased online.
How to say this without appearing to be bragging. I am proud of this piece since it is all my own design. Five years ago I would never have dreamed this, but with the knowledge gained from this site and the encouragement given by its members causes a person to progress.
Thanks for looking.
