These are the initial designs for 2 Hope chest for my daughters for this christmas. Main wood will be walnut, highlights are either bloodwood or purpleheart depending on the daughter.
This is taken from a design from Woodsmith #32. You can see a finished version finished by strube1369
A couple key differences that I am going to be doing different. I will be mitering the corners of the box, and using dovetail keys of the contrasting wood(it is not shown in the design). I also plan on making wooden drawer pulls out of the contrasting wood as well. I am going to try and post the sketchup file to share with you all as soon as I find a host.
The sketchup files can be found here.
