New York State lockdown gave me opportunity to stay home and lock myself in my workshop. I started this cherry and mahogany chest project about a year ago, finally finished. The upper chest and lower chest are not fastened together to make the chest easier to move.
Wow. What a beautiful piece of work. Thanks for posing it with the drawers out so we can see those elegant dovetails. I am kind of a sucker for Cherry and with mahogany, it will take on a red quality over time. That's a piece to hand down as a family treasure.
Aki I don't normally like a boxy style in furniture but I love this. I think your choice of woods and joinery used are the reason I like this so much. Great idea leaving then as separate stacking units.
Add the feet to the upper unit and you would have a matching chest for the foot of the bed or maybe it could be the footboard of the bed.
