When I started making my garage into a woodworking shop, a friend asked me to make her a “Hope Chest”. That was much too big of a task for a beginner like me. So for her birthday I made her this “miniature” hope chest. The we packed it into a real hope chest sized cardboard box. She was very surprised when she opened it.
It was a very good project for learning because I started with rough lumber, milled it, made box joints, and did small glue ups to achieve the final effect. The wood is oak and walnut and a strip of mahogany in the lid and on the bottom.
It may not be a hope chest but it is a very nice recipe box. :)
