Brink, do you have a final weigh in on that chest? I’m curious how heavy that thing is.

Brink, how come you went with the gas spring instead of the friction support?
I like the looks of the friction hinge but I understand the ease factor of the gas spring...

The weight of the lid was overloading the friction mechanism. Also, the springs help to lift it.

Wow that's a pretty close grain match on the one with the knot.

“Hey… handles on the lift out trays would be nice”.
I didn’t figure on that.
they need to be tall and balanced, then fold down and allow clearance to slide the trays.
this will take some figuring.

I find this to be genius and brilliant in a whole another level!!! I can see this being applied in trades shows, flea markets or booths that requires you to display pieces but need it to be completely movable. I see these boxes in that level of need and function. If you sell jewelry, pens, knives, etc.- I can see this box functioning as a display case with a glass component on the framed lid with the pin and perhaps a suspension arm “as is” or make angle cuts at the side wall and raising the pin height to get more clearance at the front (front panel) and cutting the side wall to appropriate angle OR just make a box and raise the lid to be flush with the top of the side walls.
