Hi, Here’s the walnut version of the hope chest. Fun project, easy to build. The kids really love them. Again, this is made with the Leigh Jig. This one is finished with 2 coats of Deft.

They came out great. The Leigh Jig just moved up a couple of places in the wish list.

Great job – nice joinery and wood finish. You must have a good supply of walnut :-))

I was just wondering the same thing Karson (dimensions).

Bob, since the Leigh jig is 16 or 24 inches, were you able to do the sides as single pieces or as sections and then glue them together?

A nice job.

Great worksmanship, I really like the dark finish and the dovetail detail. What are the dimensions?
