based on pictures of surviving medieval coffers or chests. like this one:
with a Kreg jig, and a plywood bottom it was an easy and fast build, the carving took longer. The originals of this style are all done in oak.
the “leg” is 7” wide 1 x pine, there is @ 14” between legs. pocket screws and biscuits hold the center panel (1/2” thick) to the leg panel (3/4” thick)
The ends are an I pattern frame of 2×2’s with a 3/4” panel nailed to the inside
