Really eye catching combination of the walnut and hickory.

Great looking chest; was that your own design or did you use a plan from somewhere?

Leggs design and curves are so nice. I like the grain of those boards.

Gorgeous. You’ve hit the nail on the head with the wood choice… Well, perhaps I’m biased; those are my favorite woods ;-) Great execution.

Nicely done – beautiful. I would love to build one – may I ask what the dimensions are?

That is a very awesome wood selection, the legs are by far the eye grabbing feature, after the wood selection.

Great piece! Can you tell me where you got the hinges/lid supports, or what the technical/brand name of them are? Perhaps a link :-) Been searching for a pair after I designed a piece inspired by yours.
Thanks!
