I built this for my grandson, Red oak on curved top, yellow pine and oak ply for side panels. I got the hardware kit from Rockler, finish is poly. I still have one to build for second grandson. Thanks for looking,Bob.

I can tell it’s a great chest by the smiles on their faces!

Way to go granddad; this looks really nice and they will have it forever and pass it on down to their first sons.

That’s a great looking chest, and it looks like the little ones really like it.
