Dear Fellow LJ’s – especially those in the Intermountain NW area:

Just thought I’d pass this along fwiw:

Pretty cool! :-)

Christopher Schwarz teaches courses on building such chest, wrote an entry in “Poplar Woodworking”, and has videos on students build the chest in the several days of class. He may be interested. Do you have any idea of the chest’s joinery under the corner covers. He uses dovetails and does tricks to keep out moisture thus preventing rust. His trays are stacked and slide across the with to allow access to those underneath.

Thanks for the post. I’m in Tennessee.
