For those that do craft shows, here’s something for you.it is patterned after the Hacienda Hope Chest that you can find in multiple places on the internet. I never actually bought the plans because I. Am cheap ;-) But I sell at least one at every show. I give them the option of a cedar lining. 36×18x18

Thanks for looking
