I recently finished this for a charity auction. The construction is through tenons. Top attached with cut nails and bottom screwed on. It’s made of hickory. Finish is lockwood water based dye followed by 2 coats garnet shellac and one coat platina shellac. I saw a picture of this chest online and the overall dimensions were given, so I drew it up and built one. It was a fun project and taught me alot—especially how heavy hickory is.
