My Daughter wanted a Hope chest but could not find one to fit in her bedroom. This resides at the foot of her bed

Way to go Dad! I am sure that your daughter is very pleased with it.

It is simply elegant!

Thanks Brett she did like it very much. The chest is made of 3/4 oak plywood and lined with aromatic ceder. The lid is attached with 3 30lb chest hinges from Rockler. They were a breeze to install and keep the lid from crashing down.
She liked it so much that she just put in a request for two Adornack chairs That will he started in June
