Colin Askey says:

It's quite a neat storage trunk,nothing fancy,but very adequate for what it's used for,worthy of my 5 ☆ rating

OlympusHeavyCavalry says:

Nice box. It's a wonder you didn't use the corner brackets on the outside, or even get hold of some that looked rustic, and make a removable tray for the inside. With the rope, maybe a type of lug could have been used, similar to a battery terminal. Always tape the ends of the rope too, as it will stop it from fraying. Well done.

What Ban would this be in a Major Project?

erwin benally says:

Nice job, good looking chest.

Edgar de Groot says:

Very nice! Thank you for sharing. If you like visable hardware, why don’t you replace the rope with a black (painted) chain?
