The first picture is an exterior shot showing the walnut , veneer, and dovetails I used to make the shell of the chest. About 220 dovetails went into making this chest. The inside of the chest lid was inspired from looking at Steve Lattas federal furniture work on Fine Woodworking.The additiional inlays are my own creation. Each of the two tills have six drawers. Birdseye maple was laid on using the hammer an hide glue method. The hex inlays and cock bead is ebony. The forth picture is the outside of my saw till. The inside of the saw till is veneered with curly maple.

Very impressive; I can only imagine the hours that must have gone into the building of this chest. Nice work!!!
After the drawer is made. Look up cockbead for all of your answers. Thanks---Ken
Good morning Sensei,
Grand children are faster amd more fun to watch. Regards--Ken
What a beautiful traditional chest and fantastic inlay! I'm curious about the ebony around the drawers- did you apply the ebony before dovetailing or apply to the assembled drawer?
Sure looks sharp! I would be very concerned about putting the first ding into that nice till. Take it to a high school shop for a week and then you can say that it has a natural patina.
Very, very nicely done!!!
