Bridal chest.

I saw this chest in Popular Woodworking old mag and just loved it, so I decided to make it in inch scale. It's an adaptation of Gustav Stickley piece from 1901. Don't know if I'm using it in my roombox, but I'm pleased with the result.  I used mahogany, basswood and cherry wood for this project.





 I also made a vase and some small stuff for roombox:

That's a very neat little box you've made. The vase, just as a side project is just as sharp. Like them both very much. Well made Victoria, my compliments!! They both fit the roombox so well : )
