Beautiful build. I’m surprised how brown the mahogany is, I like the color with the finish. The secret drawer is awesome. The tray design is pretty cool too. Are there dividers in the bottom or is it wide open?

Nice chest! Thank you for your service. Is that a flag box in the lid?

I love it! Great craftsmanship and the hidden drawer at the bottom is super cool! I’m a retired Army guy and love or brothers in the Marine Corps….Semper Fi!!!!

Petey, that is a flag case on the lid. The rest of the shadow box is for medals and rank insignia.
