Graduation Chest
#11
  
I have been making small boxes for nephews and nieces when they graduate high school. What ever I happen to have on hand gets turned into a box or chest with the design based on the wood I am using. This particular nephew is getting lucky. Biggest graduation chest/box out of the bunch. I happen to have some wide cherry left over from another project. There is one sliding tray.  The dovetails on the base molding are oriented opposite from the case. 

I still need to get some handles for the sides.

That will be a treasured gift, quite nice!
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

Very nicely done...Looks like a "mini-me" version of an antique carpenters chest I have at home...

That's a really nice gift!
If I may ask, how many hours do you have in it?

Very nice box! He will treasure it and hand it down to his children.
