Craftsman-Style Bride's Chest
Functionality and beauty combine in this classic piece of American fine furniture. Best of all, it’s every bit as practical as it is attractive.
You don’t have to be a new bride to appreciate the beauty and utility of this traditional chest. The Craftsman-style design is loosely based on a Gustav Stickley original from the early 1900s. The design is both timeless and straightforward to build. The steel corners are easy to make using common shop tools, and a few simple metalworking techniques. Plus, the cedar lining makes this chest a great place to store blankets and linens.

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.
