Chest-on-ChestThe latest addition to our Cherry Bedroom Suite has a long tradition. Not only because chest-on-chest designs have been around for over two centuries, but also because this Suite began way back in Woodsmith #53 (printed in 1987). Befitting such a rich heritage, our design uses half-blind dovetails on the drawers, classic frame & panel construction, and elegant yet simple molding and kickboard touches. If the size is an issue, we include modified plans for making either the top or the bottom chest separately.
