This was not my first time...

This was not my first time using Rockler hardware. I have always been please with all of your hardware and this time was no exception. I have been woodworking for many years and had fun building the trunk for a graduation gift for a family member. I was a bit disappointed in the plans though. Why put the templates on the back of the instructions? The instructions for the lid details were not very clear. I think a beginner would have issues with them. In general, I thought the plans could have explained more how to assemble things, and what order to do it. In the case of the lid, if you did not think it through first, you could have build yourself into a corner.I used Cherry for the main rails and styles of the trunk and White Ashsolid for the panels. Black Walnut looked great for the stapping. Since this is for a girl and I am a bit old fashion, I lined the trunk and made the tray out of Aromatic Red Cedar. This gives the inside the look and smell of a cedar chest, without taking away from the looks of the outside.

I'm a novice woodworker and I found this project to be an excellent way to learn and practice a number of techniques. It certainly took me more that 30 hours, but I learned a lot. Which shim to use with the keyed latch was a little confusing. It looked to me like they have the long and short shims drawing reversed. Overall, great plans.
