Based on a classic design, this elegant jewelry and lingerie chest project is as practical as it is pretty. The long, shallow side compartments are designed to allow chains and necklaces to hang loosely and avoid tangling, while the top compartment keeps smaller pieces neat and protected. The chest's seven drawers-five small and two large-are perfect for storing delicate lingerie and hosiery. A good project for woodworkers of any skill level, the chest utilizes mostly straight cuts and includes full-size patterns for the curves on the base. Although some edge-joining is required, construction is a simple matter of cutting out the pieces, sanding everything and assembling the project with nails and glue. Required materials for the chest include 16-18 board feet of mahogany (as pictured; other species work just as well), a 4-by-8 sheet of matching veneer plywood, a sheet of hardboard, hinges, knobs, felt or flocking (for lining the drawers), jewelry hooks, nails and glue. As an option, a mirror can be attached to the underside of the top panel. When closed, the project measures 39 inches tall by 19 inches wide by 12 inches deep. About U-Bild plans: U-Bild plans are ideal for woodworkers and do-it-yourselfers of all skill levels.
