That’s a beautiful piece. The curves really add a lot to it. What are the dimensions?

Ahhh…you must have found the same inspirational pic online that I did. I like your version. Will you be adding a lid lift/pull? How did you attach the feet? I used mortice and loose tenon.

Dewayne,
Yes, I did have the same inspiration. I also used floating tenons to put the box together. I will post the finished project, when it is done. Let me know how you like it.
