I built this hope chest for a friend to give to his new wife on their wedding day but since they would be living in a travel trailer it had to be compact. They both worked construction and followed the work where ever it went thus the travel trailer.
I used ash with a cherry stain with 1/4” thick walnut for the panels for a contrasting effect. I also lined the inside with padded burgundy felt. I used sill seal for the padding.
In it’s original state this chest would have sat at the end of a queen size bed so with a lot of help from a calculator it became a what I refer to as a mini hope chest.
