A studded bow top chest 42 inches, from an old plan modified for best use of the camphor laurel timber. First lid rib cut on a band saw and used as a template for the remainder because I'm 80 years old and "the eyes do not have it" any more. The top is honey colored blackwood veneer panels glued to both sides of 5" wide MDF x 3, held to the ribs end to end by rabbeted long half inch boards of pine painted black. The studs in the lid are made from toy wheel axles, the dome head reshaped on the sanding belt,dipped in black enamel paint to look like wrought iron and glued into the recessed c/s screw heads that secure the top to the frames . A nice challenge for me.
