You may find this tool chest a very practical design for your needs. I made my tool chest of solid mahogany. Its a great design to experiment with, you can purchase a couple of nice clear pine 1 x 12's and make a test version to suit your particular measurements before you commit to that curly maple or quilted cherry.

A Demi-Lune Table ca. 1810

This table was brought to my shop for repair. The condition was just what you might expect from a table of this type and age; loose leg joints and hinge joint damage on the folding top. It had a number of secondary issues as well, loosened and cracked veneer, a damaged finish with numerous dents and missing sections of cross-grain banding. It was barely standing upright.
