Been working on these boxes for a while. The chestnut came from my grandfather's house in West Virginia. It was being torn down and I was able to pick up just a few pieces. From what my dad tells me, this chestnut was used on a house built in the early 1900's then reused for this house that was built in the 1930's.

This one uses some teak in the corners and for the framing around the lid. I left in the nail holes in the book matched pieces for the lid.

This one uses walnut for the lid frame and the feet. My dad acquired a stack of walnut that was sawn in 1947 and sitting in a shed ever since. I had to work around the punky parts, but got some some nice pieces to work with.
The West Virginia logo was layered in by my son at his work. The test piece was crisper but I still like it.
