Going away chest/footlocker for a Marine. Used pine with an oak strip on the sides. Added some dowels through the sides just to give it a different look.

A very nice chest for a very brave U.S. Marine. I am sure your Marine will be very grateful for the chest, and I am deeply indebted to the Marine for his valiant service to our nation.

Love the way you used the knots and grain. James Kenov would be proud! Excellent work.

You did a great job on that chest; it’s very masculine.

Is he PCSing or getting out. That’s a nice box either way, most have been on hell of a Marine if getting that and just a PCS.

Very nice! How did you design the bottom? Rabbit or something else? Thanks for sharing!

Nothing fancy on the bottom. Just cut a groove the thickness of the bottom (1/4” approx) with my dado blade before I glued it together and glued the bottom in when I glued the the four sides together

Looking at your work – you are very talented. Your use of hardware helps to accent what you have created. Nice touch.
