Yo whats up everybody I finished the chest last week. The chest is 12 in wide 4 in high and 8 in deep. There are 14 3/4 in strips on the top that are glued to 2 curved pieces. I rough cut the 2 curved pieces with my jig saw then I used a rasp to take off as much material as I could without going past my line. I taped a template on the top and used a flush trim bit to get them the same size. There are 3 coats of finish and 2 coats of polyurethane on the chest. Total time fore this project was about 12 hours but I was filming most of the project.

The chest looks nice,
what type of joints for the box did you use ?

I used butt joints on the case. I was thinking about cutting a rabbet but I have never had a problem with a butt joint like this.
