Thanks! It's really not that hard.
It's just a piece of 1x8 sugar pine resawed to 5/16".
The sides, the ends and the lids are double stacked,
so there are five panels to cut. Cutting time was about
8hrs. I sanded the panels on the belts sander after they
were cut. I may do some touch up sanding on the outside
edges.....but that's all. Took about an hour of fine sanding
to fit the tenons.

When u doubled stacked, what kind of tape did you use? I know some of the double sided stuff would break your piece apart before it would give way.

I cut the pieces big and glued the corners w/hot glue.
Did not use tape just for that reason.

Worked great.

Very nice work! How will you finish this? What program did you use to generate your drawings?

Thanks!
I think I'm just going to use some kind of spray Deft.

I used the scanner/copier function on my printer....
to copy them out of a book I got at the library.
..pretty old school.
