Just a stack of old Pine floor boards. Tongue and groove. Removed the T&Gs, cleaned them up. Raised panels usind a tablesaw’s dado blade, and a couple handplanes to round the edges over. Bottom is just some more of this wood, laid on cleats, with a small gap between edge board. Top is coopered. Rough cut to fit the shallow curve, and smoothed out with a plane. Inside was left natural, outside has an “antique Cherry” stain. Molding on the top’s ends serve as handles to open the lid.
Note; the “prototype” was built a tear before this one. prototype was made from Aromatic Red Cedar.
