Default Daughters Chest

This is the Chest for my Daughter. Made of Oak and lined with cedar. Split lid so she will not have to clean the entire top of it off to access what is inside.

Very nice.
I still want a dovetail jig like that.
Mine will not do anything that wide.

Glad to hear others had the same initial reaction.
I was afraid I was turning into a dirty old man.

I love that split top Idea. And I have no idea what is wrong with the title of this.

Yes the split lids make it easier to get to what is inside without having to take everything off it.

Funny I looked through all my pictures and I never took a finished picture of it. We drove it from Tennessee to Phoenix and she drove from LA to Phoenix. I told them to bring a SUV or pick-up to carry it home. She asked for the measurements and I gave them to her with a 1/2 inch added to each side. They did not show up in a SUV or a pick up. The showed up in a Volkswagon CC 4 dr sedan. Her husband said he used a tape measure to see if it would fit and it should. Did you know that doors do not open a full 90 degree angle. We tried 4 times finally said forget it we would just drive the rest of the way to LA when I finished with my work. He said lets try one more time (he figured I would never let him forget it for the next 20 years and did not want that). Finally with a little extra stretch on the door it went in.
My daughter said they got it out but I have not seen any pictures of it yet so she could be driving around LA with it still in her car.
