I had a couple things I had sitting around I wanted to add to my chest to make it mine. One I’ve had for ~23 years, just waiting for a repurpose.
The most important thing, I installed a “pull” on the fall-front, that just happens to be able to open a bottle of beer.
A few years ago Marlboro sent me this for my birthday, I am not sure why. But anyway, I put it away in a cabinet thinking I would find a use for it one day. At some point while building chest I figured it would be a good place to mount the fixture.
The item to personalize this chest used to be on a leather belt. Parents had some belts made for my brothers and I for Christmas one year around the time I was 14. They all had our names on brass plates riveted on. Though I outgrew the belt many years ago, for some reason I have kept it.
When I started the chest I knew I would mount the plate on my chest so everyone would know it was mine for sure.
