Building hope chests for 5 granddaughters, I needed a project to give to each of our 3 grandsons. I designed this ‘chest’ sort of a locker.
Planed the oak to 1/2” – 5/8” due to weight. placed 2 strips of walnut & one of maple as a design to set it off. The tray is walnut and only fills 3/4 of the opening so taller items can be placed on one end.
Used a golden oak stain and 3 coats of wipe on poly for durability.
It measures 17×17 x 28”. The angles & bevels on the lid were tricky! Thanks for looking!
