That is very well done. I like it a lot.

And your timing is perfect for a treasure chest. Today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day.

Very nice treasure chest Howie. are those dovetails on the lid? That looks like that might have been tough to do on a coffered lid. Very nice job. I like it allot.

No Machael, box joints all the way top and bottom. Top joints were cut on the TS and the bottom was done on the Incra LS. I think the next one I’m going to do with dt’s.
Thanks to everyone for the kind comments.
