What a wonderful finished product, Derek. I just love how the grain flows across all the drawer fronts. Great work!

Derek - excellent execution.

The backs of the chest reminded me of a story in Steve Jobs book. His father inspired him to make EVERY detail of a design perfect. Jobs talked about the layout of the motherboards, the interiors of the computers and products they built and how it should be as beautiful as the outside.

Your back is tribute to caring about the craft.

Nice work!
