beautiful, the leather sets it off! Did you have plans or is it a personal design? I’ve made a steamer trunk before buty I really would like to build an arch top sometime.

Sorry I don’t use plans I draw my own up as far as arch it took me three hours to get the correct arch for the laths or slats to work out and it still could use a tune up but Im satisfied with results. Thanks for reply
