Well done. I like that you kept the sapwood on the front and really like the handle design. I may have to find a project to borrow that style of handle.
Great job @craftingwood , this came out amazing! I like how you paid attention to all of the fine details. I also really like how you used leather for lid straps. I'm going to do the same on my school box. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks @Sean ! I completely forgot to consider the lid strap when designing the chest and made due with what I had on hand; it turned out to be just right.
