Very nice piece of furniture. I see you got both of your Farther’s chests in the 1st picture. Is that a hasp and padlock on the finished piece?

lol I was looking at the “chest-s” as well.

It is beautiful. .. the wooden chest, I mean… not that the other isn’t as well.. doh, I had better quit while I’m ahead. .. a head, not a chest.

I love the chest. (The wooden one, I mean.)
