This thing was a ton of work, but I’m very happy with the results. If you want to become proficient at dovetails then this is the project for you. I still need to make the three trays, but that and paint will happen eventually.

Nicely done. Take your time laying out the interior, most folks (myself included) rethink their the layout two or three times. Also you might want to post this in the toolbox thread.

Looks great! Nothing like a well-built chest for man toys. :)

You have some fine hand tools!

I’m in the process of DT’ing my trays and adding paint, too…

Super nice chest. Would really love to see more pics. Close ups of the joinery, and any in-progress shots you may have.

Nice looking selection of tools as well. They’ll be happy in their new high end dwelling. :-)
