Line and Berry Chest

There’s a simple elegance to this Chester County line and berry chest, yet there’s plenty of drama. With raised-panel sides and arch-top drawers, this chest offers plenty of opportunities to expand your skills. Because the class size is limited, you can customize the class the way you want. Want to add bracket feet or add inlay to the side panels? No problem.


Some of the skills learned in the Line and Berry Chest class are:

  • How to make raised panel case parts
  • How to layout and create line and berry drawer fronts
  • Making arch-top drawers

Materials are not included in the class fee. Lumber for this project may be purchased through us or on your own and shipped to our shop at least four weeks prior to the class.

Hardware for this project may be purchased through one of the vendors on the resources page.

    I have taken many classes with Chuck. He is a superb teacher, explaining thing very patiently and very well. I learned a bunch of new skills. The piece is as stunning as the original. There is still work to be done at home but I brought home a completed carcass that is ready for moldings to be wrapped and drawers to be fitted. Within the next two to three years, all the furniture in my home will have been built by me–with lots of help from Chuck.
