Made this for a friend/customers grandson. Pattern from Cherry Tree. Made from pine with natural stain. Had to add a second lid support, one did not quite hold. I also made the handles from wood instead of rope and changed the lid just a little. Made a basic nameplate for front. Pretty nice plan overall. Grandma happy, kid happy, so I’m happy. Thanks for looking. Scott.

That everyone’s happy is a good thing. They have reason to be too, it’s a nice chest. Makes me want to build one for the children’s department at Church. I like the name plate as well. You did good.

I very much like it’s simple lines. Pine looks great as material for this chest.
