DAN MARTIN, Galena, Ohio
Box and cart. This Gerstner-style machinist’s chest is built from walnut, with poplar drawer sides and solid brass hardware. The roll-around cart is constructed using 3⁄4" maple plywood with walnut accents and soft-close, full-extension drawer slides.
Patrick Schmitt, Streator, IL
Barrel chest. A few friends gifted some old whiskey barrels to Patrick on the condition that he make something cool from them. The result is this 171⁄2" × 32" × 19" rolling chest with a barrel lid inset in the top. The chest’s bottom is raised to conceal casters underneath.
PAUL BLACKWELL, MACEDON, NY
Almost done. Blackwell built the Storage Ottoman from our June/July 2019 issue using walnut, with stained oak plywood for the panels. He finished the piece with polyurethane and paste wax. Blackwell’s upholstering pal has agreed to make the cushion for the top.
NICHOLAS BRUNO, LOWER ALLOWAYS CREEK, NJ
Birthday box. Bruno found the Collector’s Showcase from April/May 2010 while searching for gift ideas for his granddaughter’s sweet 16. He used walnut and oak ply for the case, and white oak for the drawer fronts. Bruno added a drawer to make room for his granddaughter’s growing jewelry collection.
