I want to design a chest. I’d build it but I really don’t have the tools or space. So I’m trying to assemble the designs and material construction to give someone.
The chest will be a utility and decorative piece.
I want to be able to consolidate my most important memories and documents in this chest. Like if I had one place for all the most important possession, this chest is where they would reside.
I want material that’s both durable, to last forever, and fire resistant, and bug resistant, if possible.
Once the dimensions and general architecture is finished, and construction is complete, I want to hand carve the outside.
It’ll be a safe, a decoration, and a family heirloom, something to pass on to future generations.
