I gave this to my wife for Christmas last year, but with no stain or finish, so she could choose the color. I finally finished it in July, and just realized that I never posted it. It is built w/ 3/4” Quarter Sawn White Oak, and the panels are QSWO 1/4” plywood. The lid has a piano hinge, with 3 of the lid closers so the lid will stay put in any position. The lid is solid boards glued up in a panel with breadboard ends. It’s heavy. This inside is lined with tongue and groove cedar, unfinished of course. I rubbed on the Minwax stain, I forget which color, and then sprayed it wit several coats of lacquer. I put it on casters so it would be easy to move around, but they hide nicely behind the skirt. The wife is happy, so I am happy. It sits at the foot of our bed, and she’s got it filled with linens and blankets. Thanks for looking!
