This is a hope chest that I built for my daughters wedding on June 23, 2012.
It measures 48” wide X 19” deep, and 27” high.
The chest is made from hard maple. The bottom of the chest is pine. All joints are mortise and tenon with cherry pins. The tongue and groove floor of the chest is mounted in a dado. I put a trim detail (pictured) in a dado around the bottom of the lid to cover the seam when the lid is closed.
The finish is Minwax oil called “natural.” Its sealed with several coats of Cabot polyurethane.
