This small chest is very period inspired. Made of Walnut with Poplar as the secondary wood and Bubinga for the diamond inlay on the door. The interior has a highly figured drawer face (Not easy to hand plane!) that is also dovetailed. The crown was hand shaped with scartch stock and a cove jig on the tablesaw. The project was made as a 1 year aniversary preasent for my wife and a project to keep me occupied in my small temporary shop that I am in during my period at NBSS. I want brass hardware for the door and drawer but small brass knobs I find hard to come by localy here so I will be ordering them from horton at some point soon. I did do full size drawings of this piece before building it and its not something I had ever done. I did this in excited expectation of school and it left me thirsty for a lesson on drafting. I will be posting lots more to come!

Beautiful small chest Coopman, I'm sure your wife loves it especially as you made it for her. I wish you well at NBSS, we have sure seen some very talented people come out of that program. I look forward to seeing more photos of your work.
