Reader Jason Frantz of WoodShop Artisans sent me a photo of a tool chest that has been in his family for many years. The corners are bound with brass plate, both on the main carcase and on the plinth, upper skirt and dust seal on the lid.
I like the cove shapes that the owner cut into the brass plate. It’s a nice touch on what could otherwise be a pedestrian job. Thanks Jason!
