I’ll second the interesting design. I am curious though what the skids were for? Were they a design element or for something practical? Very nice build though….great looking chest.

The hackberry is interesting wood….it seems to always be spalting. I used to turn alot of it for practice as it is cheap and easy to acquire for turning blanks. I have never thought of using it for lumber….

Really nice, love the through mortised case. Traditional drawer runner construction or some type of slides?
