Getting to the Bottom

I don't have a daughter, so this chest will live at the foot of our bed, holding extra blankets. I placed 3/4" by 3/4" cleats around the perimeter of the bottom, flush with the bottom edge of the rails. The bottom planks are 3/4"-thick aromatic cedar, held together with simple tongue-and-groove joints. I nailed the bottom planks to the cleats at the edges and ends. The cedar is left unfinished.

In the end, this chest has a clean, contemporary look with classic proportions. Changing the material may have disguised its origin, but the strength of the design shines through. Good design, after all, is timeless. PW
