Cedar chest with bypassing lids

This was a custom design chest that had bypassing lids. One end of the chest is hinged and held in place by dowels so that you can pull the dowels out, fold the hinged section down, and remove both lids at one time if so desired. My kids loved playing in it, and that is the single project I have completed that I wish I would not have sold. I’ve tried to buy it back…..... no luck there!

I always like cedar.

Very nice box.

You can just make another! That cedar should be readily available in your area.

Are the lids or lid support rails strong enough to sit on. I seen Cedar Chests that doors slide in the front. 1st time I’ve seen them slide on top. Does look nice.

They are strong enough to sit on. That was the hardest part of the whole thing. Leaving enough wood in between them to be sturdy and not leave a huge gap between the lids.
