While these small chests may have originally been used for storing rare spices, they were often filled with valuables such as jewelry and documents. The 36" × 48" plan is complemented with a detailed and well-written instruction book that contains a bill of materials, a cutting list, jig and fixture plans (where necessary), alternative construction notes and suggested finishing techniques.
Highly figured wood and hand-cut joinery make this chest a showpiece of craftsmanship. When complete, it measures 18" high by 15" wide and 10" deep.
