Most excellent.

I’ve built 3 hope chest, one similar to this using avoidare and padauk, for my 3 kids. The wife is next.

Did you use the new slow close hinges that are out on the market now?

Rockler “Lid-Stay” Torsion hinges were used, they work nicely.

Very nice walnut and cherry chest! I like how you trimmed out the cedar on the inside with a walnut frame It gives it a well finished look. Well done keep up the good work.

love it! the walnut and cherry go very well together.

did you design it yourself or follow any plans? also, what thickness are the cherry panels, and are they solid or ply?

The design was copied from a peice done by a vermont furniture maker. a fellow lumbjock helped identify the dimensions based on the photograph. the cherry panels are solid, book matched about 3/8”.

nice. i do like the look of the flat, thin panels. sometimes raised panels get too much attention!

i’m also interested in how you fixed the bottom, since that appears to be a solid piece. Also, i’d like to know how you fixed the cedar paneling too. It looks like there’s a little walnut trim around the top and bottom, but are they glued in, nailed in, floating? and how thick are the cedar panels?

sorry for all the questions… i really like this design too and I think i might do something like it this spring. thanks!
