Hello fellow Lumberjocks,

I built this chest to be auctioned off at a March of Dimes fundraiser earlier this year. It was a joy to build and I learned a WHOLE bunch from this one. I used a Leigh D4R to cut the dovetails.

Beautiful. Well done. Is it common to have floating panels in the top like that?

Wonderful chest, I like everything about it, from the bottom curled feet, to the dovetails to the top. Man that grain is gorgeous. Nice job, and for a worthy cause. I don’t know if I made something that nice I’d want to give it away. LOL
