Nice work so far. What kind of wood is this and what type of finish are you going to use?

Very nice. Looks like maple and walnut. Is that right? Nice looking jointery.

Good job so far, what kind of handles will you be putting on your chest if any?. I ask because I never know what handles to put on my chests. I tried using rope handles and wood handles with llimited sucess, sometimes they don’t have the right look.

I like the look of your lid, all you need now, are those chocolate filled gold coins to fill your chest…

Its walnut and hickory thiers more pics of the build on my projects page. Im thinking that black iron handles would look cool. Honestly I think im going to finish the shellac then take it to woodcraft and match handles and a latch to it till I find ones that I like.

Nice work Bro. I like the arched top. How did you get the top to be smooth and what kind of joinery did you use on the horizontal boards.
