Your chest is beautiful. Did you design it yourself? Where did you get your hardware? Is it to much to ask for the details of how you built you beauty. I really admire what you have done.

Thanks MAS520. I get all of my hardware from They can be a little expensive but its the best site I’ve found so far. As for the construction, its kinda a mix of design. I’ll get ideas from other projects and try to incorporate them into mine. For this one I made the four sides using 1×6 boards edge glued together with biscuit’s for added strength. Once they were glued up I hand cut the joints with a chisel (time consuming). After cutting the slot for the bottom of the trunk, and cutting the square holes with a mortise machine, I rounded off all the ends with a router then glued it all together. The lid was done the same way with the exception of being able to remove the bottom to get into the shadow box portion. Hopefully I explained it alright. If you have any other questions feel free to get ahold of me. Thanks

Have your say...
