Very Nice! I hope to someday have the right skill to do a chest like this.

I am new to this website and fairly new to woodworking. Does anyone know where I can find various projects done out of Woodsmith Magazines. I have done a few projects (my biggest is the coffee table from issue#189) and i would like to see if anyone else has bulit some of the things I have since we all know that we often make our own modifications to plans and details. If anyone can point me in the right direction, that would be great.

Great looking chest. I admire the joinery and like the fact, or it appears, the bottom is broken into three drawers instead of one large wide one. You lose some storage space but the drawers work so much better.

Beautiful chest out of one of my favorite woods. Nice sharp dovetails, nice drawers, finish and design.
