Gather Ye Rosebuds on Stationery Chest

Project Description

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 What advice would you give someone starting this project? I don't even know how it started!
