This small chest still needs final sanding, and will be finished in a clear coat. It was inspired by a photo on the cover of a recent Rockler catalog.
The wood is Bubinga, the white is the sapwood, the red is the heartwood from the same tree. Mitered corners and contrasting splines adorn the chest. The raised panel lid is strengthen with internal loose tenons, specifically domino's.
"I have made several online orders from Rockler, and the customer service has been great. While I have not had an unreasonable number of complications, I have had a few. Each time the folks at Rockler were very quick to respond, easy to work with and resolved the issue in the best way imaginable. Many thanks! I will be a customer for many years to come." -
