This is a sample i made for a client, she has a pawn shop and would like to gift some of her clients with a chest that resemble something like a treasure chest.

this one is made of mahogany and the letter are made in some local white-cream color wood. its 9 inches long, 5 wide and about the same height. it has faux leather and some decorative brass like things that i dont know how you call them. sadly we can not find good enough catches in our town so thats why i did no put any on this chest, would had been nice.

the screws in the handle were too large and i just made some spacer to fit them in so i could take the photos.
tomorrow i will get the right size ones.
