The sides are raised panel and the doors are flat panel construction. It is 18” high x 12” wide x 10” deep nad the case dividers are solid oak as well.. It has a slide out necklace rack also. the drawer fronts are 1/2” oak with inset brass handels. The drawers are made of batic birch. The only surprise I encountered was it’s final weight—28 lbs

Really beautiful chest. The color combinations really work well together.

That’s a magnificent case. 28 pounds is amazing. I would not have thought it would weigh that much.

Is this your own design or a plan? Either way it shows a lot of craftsmanship.

You’ve got talent!

At 28 pounds, the burger will have a hernia! That is a good looking box, and the pull out necklace try is a good use of the space.

Are you going to make up another one just like it or onto your next set of boxes or another project entirely?

Great case! Better find the studs when you mount that puppy! One of these projects (for the wife) is always a good precursor to: “Honey, I sure need some more wood….”.
