Memory Chest Prototype

Memory Chest Prototype

Our oldest son will be graduating highschool this summer, so my wife and I wanted to make him a nice chest to hold all the things we’ve been collecting for him since he was a baby.  I thought I would make a prototype first, before making a bunch of mistakes with more expensive hardwood, and I sured “learned” quite a few lessons in the process.  I decided to use lock-rabbit joints  for simplicity with the tools I had.  Overall, I think this one came out a little rough around the edges but nice.  We are going to tweak the dimensions and the design a bit and then carefully create the real thing.
