Line the chest

ICut the front and back lining pieces (M) to size from 'A" cedar plywood, keeping the grain direction horizontal. Then, check the fit of the pieces in the chest, but do not glue them in position yet. Cut the side liners (N) to size and dry-fit them, trimming if necessary.

2 Glue and brad the front and back liners in place, and then the side liners.

3Cap the top edge of the liner material with quarter-round molding (O, P). To make these pieces, cut a piece of 3A" oak 2" wide and 62" long (for safety's sake and ease of cutting the pieces on a tablesaw, we used a 2"-wide board). Rout a V\ round-over on two edges, where shown in Step 1 of Drawing 6. Then, follow Steps 2 and 3 to rip the two quarter-round pieces from the oak strip. The thin strips may have a tendency to kick back when the cut is completed. To be safe, use a push block and don't stand directly behind the piece being cut.
