What are you most proud of? I'm just very proud of the whole thing, and especially proud of my talented son. He was a finish carpenter at the time and used scraps from new home moldings to build it. The pin on the front of the lid was my mother's. I removed the back and glued it to the chest for a final, elegant (I thought) touch
