Tom Romer says "I built this chest to be auctioned as a fund-raiser for Washington Open Elementary School, where my daughter goes to school. In the school, the 4th and 5th graders make quilts, and they are auctioned off, so I thought a quilt chest would be a natural complement. The chest is about 30Wx20Dx24H. It is made from straight-grain doug fir for the frame and birch for the panels. The inlaid design in the top is the school's logo; it represents the student, the teacher, and the parent dancing together. It is inlaid with the double-bevel marquetry technique. There is also a little dancer inlaid on one leg."
