From G.H.J., East Woodstock, Conn.— In answer to “C. C. S.” of Kansas City, Mo., I send photograph and sketch of a chest which I made of black walnut. dovetailed, and it may prove of interest to the correspondent in question. The chest is 20 x 30 inches and 18 inches deep, inside measurement. It has three drawers at each end, and the front side is a saw till 5 x 30 inches, outside measurement, which lifts out. The drawers are 10-1/2 x 15 inches and 2 inches deep, so partitioned as to suit the tools. The cover shown in Fig. 2 is 1-1/2 inches deep inside; the top has raised panels inlaid with 26 different kinds of wood. The panels have a border 1/4 inch wide and 1 inch from the edge all around. It is put in on a miter and has an emblem In the center of the middle panel, as shown. Fig. 3 is a photographic view, showing the chest with the cover raised and indicating the position of some of the tools.
