Great looking chest.
I think I will borrow some of your design ideas for a sideboard I’m designing for my daughter. I like the arch in the top rails and the idea of wood handles.

Beautiful. I too am in the middle of a project for my youngest daughter – an armoire of cherry. I know the pains and the satisfaction that goes into a beautiful piece like this that will become a great family heirloom. Great job!
Question – How did you finish it, and did you do anything different to the inside of the drawers vs the rest of the cabinet?

Now this is a beautiful chest. The arched panels and rails complimented by the matching door pulls add interesting details to the cabinet. Cherry is my personal favorite and this piece is outstanding. I am sure your daughter enjoys it.

Any plans for matching pieces to finish out the set?

How did you finish this piece?

Beautiful chest. The drawer pulls and door handles look good also.
