I got this idea from a scroll saw magazine. The chest is made from old growth Western Red and Alaskan Yellow Cedar salvaged from Whistler mountain when they created some new high altitude ski runs. I have embelished the original plan with the double dragons, base and carrying handles. The chest measures 21w x 12d x 14.5 high. The chest is filled with all sorts of magical items which I cannot divulge.

P.S. A friend of mine is a First Nations carver and he has offered to teach me to chip carve scales on the wee beasties!

Very creative design. The dragons really make this unique, I have never seen anything like it. This is a one of a kind. All the work flows together perfectly, this work of art is going to be someones heirloom.
Great Project, thanks for taking the time to show us your great workmenship.

A great looking box. Are the handles on the outside a design or a necessary item. I can’t tell the size from the pictures. Sorry you told us the size.

A great piece.
