At first I thought the buttons were G&G style finger joints, but when I zoomed in I realized they were buttons. In the process of looking at the zoomed pictures the wooden “buckles” (?) caught my eye. I like it. It looks like it was made from a single piece of wood. The tapered sides also make the piece more than just a big box. Nicely done.

This is a beautiful chest and looks like a copy of an original piece. Nice work!

Fine looking sea chest Kenny. If you are up to the (substantial) challenge the traditional rope beckets can be found, step by step, in this book.
