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.

Outstanding work - like the mitered casing faces too. Beautiful results. Give us some production notes on the process you used.

Good job, that idea of making a 2 piece is fantastic, U could be used as a dresser or a chest at the foot of the bed.
Real nice color and wood grain.

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.

It might have taken you a while to get around to finishing it... It's worth the wait!
