Copy that. I like how you left the horizontal pieces slighly proud of the sides – unless thats just tired eyes deceiving me.

Super stylish, comes to mind. Or maybe – swanky.

Didn’t realise you are a misandrist... what about one for the boys.

Excellent work.

Did you build all four at once or sequentially?

Are they all identical?

What did you make the front knobs with? It was clever whatever you did! LOL

The son and I spend time together with the Porsches, his and mine. Fun for both of us. The Cayman I know he enjoys however a jewelry box not. Have made him and the grandson other items and then not the girls Guitar hangers, desk trays, etc.

Excellent work.

Built all at the same time. Having 4 women in your life one must not have favorites. I do this often making more than one at a time. It does not seem to take that much longer as the time is spent setting up for the saw, router table or whatever. Find this true on simpler projects than more elaborate ones, would not try to make 2 or more Penn. Spice Chests at the same time.
The knobs are simple Lee Valley brass knobs. 1/2” diameter.

Thanks for the comments much appreciated.
