Hey! Thanks so much for all the compliments. I do appreciate all of them very much.
Sorry for the delay in responding…
This chest was a gift for my mama for Christmas a few years back. It was among the first projects I ever took on in which I started from scratch with raw lumber and a rough plan. It’s not perfectly square, and the finish isn’t perfect, and the techniques I used in building it were clumsy at best. And at the time, I didn’t have intentions of this becoming more than a hobby that I enjoy from time to time.

It’s dimensions are approx (I’m guessing from memory here) 20”long x 10” tall x 8” deep. Something like that anyway.

Thanks again friends!
