Packed with traditional details, you can build one or two of these small chests to add style and storage to your home.
Campaign furniture was designed to provide 19th-century military officers with rugged, versatile storage that could be packed up and moved easily. Although you probably aren’t on the move, no doubt your house could use more storage. And you’ll find that the solid construction and eye-catching details of this project make it ideal for homes today.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
