This is a really nice chest. Did you use dowels to secure the miter joints or screws and wooden buns ?
This is good inspiration !

Best,
Serge

Bricofleur: Thank you my friend… Yes the miter joints have dowels and the plywood is in a groove. There are no screws except on the hinges of the chest. On glue-up on the frame miters, I first screw them and after the glue was set, I remove the screws, drill a larger hole and then put in the dowels !

It’s a nice practical box made out of reclaimed wood. There are so many things that boxes can store. Nice work.
