This chest was made in Manchester, CT at a class in the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking. I gave this chest to my granddaughter. The finish was several coats of waterlox ,covered by several coats of shellac. The hinge in the middle allows the llid to stay in any position you leave it in so you can’t get hurt by it falling on you.

Very nice, what kind of finish did you use? I like the maple and how it turned out with the finish on it. I have built maple chests but I never quite got the finish right to my liking.
Congrats
