Small chest that I made for a friend of mine’s daughter who is a new elementary school teacher this year. It’s walnut with some semi-curly maple inlays. The finish is 2 coats of Sherwin Williams Bright Rubbed CAB-Acrylic. (I love this stuff!) Stick on rubber feet i found at Lowe’s. Friction lid support modified slightly to fit. The box joinery was 45° #10 biscuits. (You may be able to see in the pictures that I should have used #0)

Very nice. Not sure I would trust it being around a bunch of school kids!

nice looking chest. The addition of the maple inlay is a nice design feature.

Very good looking box and I love the Treasure Chest style of top. What angles did you use for makeing the top.

I used SketchUp for the design. Then for the lid sides I used the Big Print program from woodgears.ca (which is one of my favorite sites on the web) so I try to support Mathias when I can but if you didn’t want to pay for the big print program, I could have just transferred the angles off the SketchUp model using the digital protractor.
