Thank you Mark. I especially like the feet on your chest. Do you have the book "Spice Chests of Chester County"? There's a ton of good photographs of various spice chests.

Tom, you'll be happy to know that the plans match what you show.  They were drafted by Michael Sener in 2001, so happily he worked the correction in.  These are the finest plans I've purchased...hand-drawn, four pages, very detailed.

I do find it interesting that the pivot point is not aligned with the upper corner of the vertical raised panel...suspect that gives a very subtle "pinch" to the arch at it's lowest point that makes it more pleasing to the eye.  Not something I would've picked out without this build, but now that I look through photos of other raised arched panels I think I see this consistently {or I'm imagining it, which is possible :-) }.
