I messed up some raised panel doors for some custom cabinets so I had a double panel and the two singles floating around for a while. Finally I decided to stick em together and make a small chest. I decided to do a curved top to make the project more interesting. I glued up an oak panel and curved the top with a plane. The inside curve I had to build a jig, two half moons with a plate connecting them for the router to sit in. The moons slid back and forth on boards on each side of the panel. The bottom is cedar. The tray bottom is red cedar. The top is held on with rare earth magnets. I reversed the polarity on opposing sides so the lid would only fit one way. Its finished with stain and satin poly.
