A set of two retirement chests that I built for a Major and a Gunnery Sergeant. Both are made of pine with Cherry inserts on the corners. Cedar lining on the inside.

Fine Work Demy, impressive in every way…The bent, see-through tops, Plexi? How thick?It’s a Great Idea and Feature!

Thanks. The top is plexi. Not sure the thickness; the thinnest one they sell at Lowe’s.

Even thin stuff must have considerable strength, “arched” like that!Again, Great Idea for a lid, and perfect for display purposes…
