Hi Everyone
I was asked to create a special keepsake chest for a couple in memory of their first child.
The chest is made from Peruvian Walnut and measures 28” x 16” x 10”. The Memorial Plaque is made from Holly and laser engraved. Although I had to learn a few new techniques in the construction of this project I can’t say this was a fun project.

That’s a beautiful chest. I hate the circumstances, but it’s a beautiful build. Nice and tight workmanship. Well done, Sir.

It’s a lovely and well made chest. Great design, tight joints, clean lines and like the drawer. Great job!
