This is a project that I was supposed to have completed last year for the Little Boss (read WIFE). It is made from Jarrah for the framing and the legs The panels are Sheoak. The bottom is Western Red Cedar. The design is a copy of several ones out there already with some of my own features added. Sorry if I have not given credit for the design to a specific person. The hinge is a piano type as I have had far more success with this when the chest is also used as a seat. Sometimes the butt hinges work loose.

Really nice I like the cushion you incorporated into the top its a nice touch. I’m going to have to keep that in mind when I get around to making one.
