What a great chest…I usually say that to women ;). I should create a chest for my military items. It would be nice and add value compared to the plastic footlocker I am currently using.

Thanks for posting this.

Can you tell me the antique store you use? I have a ship out here in San Diego that wants me to make one for their CO and your designs are awesome, so I am going to give it a try. If you have any lessons learned that you would like to share please let me know.
