Solid oak? Must weigh a ton. That is a good looking project.

Cut your own wood or are you buying the wood? Just curious. Very nice looking chest.

Very nice. Can’t buy fine craftsmanship like that. Oak is always a good choice and youi have good quality wood.

SSNVET the band is also made out of a piece of oak that I 45ed one edge and then made my lines by just raising my table saw blade 16th of an inch and made a pass every inch.

Thanks everyone for the great comments. Monte I bought all the wood I live on the plains were there is not much to mill from but that would be a dream to be able to mill my own lumber! As for the weight of the project it does weigh a ton but like they say bigger is better unless it is your waist band!
