built this box for my son based on grestner box that found a picture of online
Chest is built with cherry and brass hardware from Rockler. Single top lock secures top and pins drop down thru to secure face. I like this better then the trunk hardware seen on most of these chests as it needs to be moved by two people when full and the side handles are heavy enough to allow this.A top handle isn’t necessary. The finish is danish oil with four coats pre- cat laq.
The design was taken from a picture of the chest that had h,w,d listed and I lofted it full size with use of dividers and some visual tweaking. I do a lot of reverse engineering in my projects.
