Mission Inspired Chests

Made 2 chests out of Cherry. Inspired by a Stickley catalog that I found online. Style is attributed to Harvey Ellis.

Blum soft-close undermount drawer guides. Dovetailed drawer boxes. Aromatic cedar drawer bottoms in 2 drawers.

These look very nice…........even lying on their sides.
Well done.
