That’s the whole picture! Curves, mesquite,sloped sides, box joints, and REALLY cool hinge and lock. This is my kind of project! You did a super job and your daughter and her husband will treasure it forever.

That’s beautiful, that would look good even if I was blind. :-)

If you have more pics, I’d like to see more detail on that hinge.

Cool. Funny lock.

Could you detail how you did the finishing?
