When I decided to make this chest, I had already glued up the top and had intended to use it as a wall hanging, but it came out so perfect that it screamed chest lid.
The decision to use three woods on the exterior, (the chest uses 5 different woods altogether), was upon reflection a mistake. Two woods will be my limit in the future. I spent more time designing on the fly than building sometimes.
I set out without a plan when I built this, and I let the box grow out of my imagination taking care each step of the process to try and bring it all together.
I think it came together well and it is certainly unique.
My next box will be made from cherry and may or may not resemble a chest a bit more. At least the lid will be a chest type lid.
Thanks for looking. You guys are the best and with out some of you this wouldn’t be as good so thanks for all your continued advise.
