Love this hope chest made out of solid Black Walnut with a touch of Hickory on the ends of the suspended shelf. The lid is designed to holds items also.

Beautiful chest. I like the cat too.

Thank you Mike. Both my girls were playing around it after I put it in my room. Though Ying (the siameese on the top blends in well with the black walnut)

The walnut hope chest is just beautiful, such a nice blend of colors. The raised front panel really sets it off. I just bought a bit to try to some, hope they turn out as nice as yours. Thank you for posting.

Thank you Jack,
All 4 sides are raised panels. The top is what spured the project. I found 2 slabs of black walnut that mirrored one another with live edges and started from there.
