Here is a treasure chest that I built for my Sister birthday which is today. I built it from cedar that a guy gave the school, I plane it down to 3/4’’ I use biscuts for the box joinery and I use glue and brad nails for the curve top. Tools I use, the Table Saw, Miter Saw, 20’’ Planer, 12’’ Jointer, Dewalt Jigsaw, Brad nailer, and a Flush Trim Router.

You are a great son, and a great brother. Your family knows this. Those projects mean more than most, because you built them with your heart. They look great to.
