Default Chest on Chest

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.

That is very nice, Aki, very nice work! That's a good combination of woods, too. What finish did you use? Is this your design? It's nice.

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.
