My brother is involved with a group called the Society for Creative Arts. Basically they reenact medieval times. He saw this chest on a forum he goes to and sent me the link. I thought I would share it because I found it pretty impressive. Hope the link works:

Your welcome PurpLev. That had to take quite a bit of planning to make, he said he started it about a year ago.

What PurpLev said.

I thought it would fold out into a work bench. What a hoot.

yeah, with every picture my mind reevaluated what I thought this would turn into.

I most certainly did NOT see where this was going to by just looking at the pics…. quite impressive

I liked it better as a chest but damn, that is pretty clever engineering.

Heh—at the first picture with the lid up, I thought “holy crap, that’s a bed!” I guess after letting enough people hit you in the head with sticks you start to see things from a certain perspective…

There are some absolutely brilliant artisans in the SCA, and some of them excel at making history extremely complicated :)

wow, that is incredible. When I opened the page I thought hmm…what’s so special about this plain pine box…until I scrolled down and saw what was inside!
