Dick, your project is right up my alley as I am on a chest making binge. I recently left active duty Navy. That is a beautiful piece of work.

Thanks LJs, Check to see if that book is available somewhere. The plan called for fancier hardware, but I couldn’t find it here at the time.
At one time I was on a kick making chests for gifts.

That’s great. I think I’d prefer one of these to a hope chest in the BR.

Dick – That’s some light wood you used ;)

LOL Dennis!

Don’t think you should make this one David, you’d need one that floats on water, not in mid-air! your Navy buds would give you hard time ;)

I love military chests. I had forgotten until you posted this, but I’m adding that to my list of future projects!

Wow, your head or the chest is in the clouds, and odd place for a naval chest. Beautiful job.
