« Part 19: Final assembly and applying finish. Part 20 of Father - Daughter Project series Part 21: all done.... »

Getting close to wrapping this one up… I was sweating bullets that I would mount the lid cockeyed, or bungle the lid stay (which I did)....

Cedar bottom done

Hinges and stays… I like these lid stays from Rockler, but you have to pay very close attention to the installation geometry or the lid won’t close all the way. I goofed and have two unused screw holes to prove it

Sure looks PURDY!!!

Great job on the “Memory” chest. This chest is/will be filled with much more than just “Hope”!!!

You didn’t “goof”....
You just gave it some additional character!!!
