I made this Hope Chest out of Cherry for my cousin to give to her Grandson for Christmas in 2011. The Cherry was from a local tree that had been removed so a horse barn could be built. It has safety close hinges so he wouldn’t slam the lid on his fingers.

Thank you all for the wonderful comments. I consider myself to be a few steps below the abilities of the vast majority of fellow woodworkers on this site so it really means a lot and makes me want to get started on another project.
