These six-board chests will both store your gear then serve as your
seat.  Built from 3/4" and 1/2" oak planks, they're wide and strong
enough to hold two friends.  Hinges are steel, painted black to prevent
rust.  Handles are cast iron.  All boards and fittings are attached with
forged cut nails, which have a rectangular cross section to reduce
splitting.  Hinge and handle nails are clenched inside.

The chests are finished with boiled linseed oil.  You can paint the wide
flat surfaces  with your personal arms or other emblems as shown.  
The bottoms of the feet are finished with polyurethane to reduce wicking
when set on damp ground.  

Overall dimensions 27" x 19" x 11".  
Interior dimensions 25" x 10" x 9-1/2"".
Weight approx 30 lbs.
