It looks great!
Dovetail joint on the stile and rail?
That book matched lid is something else.

Thanks, I liked the lid on this one best. Arched raised panels and dovetails just sounded like a good idea until it came around to assembly time.Won’t do that again. lol

Very nice construction. The arched panels look great.

This is one of three chests built from a log I had milled up. This one has a book matched lid and matching raised panels. The secondary wood is aromatic cedar. The finish is four coats of tung oil and wax.
