This is an ongoing project I've been involved in for about the last 10 years or so.  With the help of a friend, I make these faith chests for our church.  They are given as gifts from the congregation when a child is baptized.

If you are going down a river at 2 mph and your canoe loses a wheel, how much pancake mix would you need to shingle your roof?

That really looks good. May I ask where you got the patterns for the cross and the symbol on the top?

Thanks

The symbol on the top is representative of the Trinity.  Our church is Trinity Lutheran we use it several places.  I simply drew that pattern.  It's a triangle, with 3 interconnecting circles.

The cross pattern I got out of a scroll saw magazine or book of patterns.  I don't remember exactly where it came from.  

There are a lot of similar style cross patterns on this site.  It may even be in there somewhere.

Very well done!  Do you normally do all of them in oak?  Could I ask how you do the box joints?  Those chests will be a constant reminder through the years of the special event!
