Very nice…. I’m making the same design with my oldest daughter.

Do tell ….. What’s the perimeter band at the top?

Please post pic of finished assembly with top mounted

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!
