small ammunition chest with a copper top
 
[table][tr][td][table][tr][td]A couple of years ago I posted a build of two ammo chest that I made. Those have long since sold.

I have a new customer that wanted one but he wanted a copper top on it instead or the ornate ironwork that I was doing.

I have been at it for about two weeks and have a lot of pictures. I better start posting some of them now.

Here are two of the older ones I did.

Here is the start of the new project.
As long as I was setting up to make a chest I decided I would make three of them at one time.
this is cutting to size and doing dovetails.
The bottoms are secured with walnut pegs.

At this point, I started working only on one chest. I will decide what I want to do with the other two later.

Next is making the hinges, corner angles and hasp. My customer wanted only flat bar with no ornamentation.

Location: Cypress, TX [/td][td][table][tr][td]I did the copper top today. It is pretty involved. It took 122 copper nails.
After set up, I center punch through my template with an ice pick 122 times.
Then I drill through the copper 122 times. Then I drill a pilot hole for the copper nails 122 times.
The copper nails are 1" long but in this case I need 5/8" long. http://www.woodworking.org/InfoExcha...s/icon_eek.gif

So I cut 122 nails to 5/8" length. http://www.woodworking.org/InfoExcha...n_confused.gif

After all that, it turned out pretty good. http://www.woodworking.org/InfoExcha...on_biggrin.gif

The brass plates cover the hinges.

This is where I stand right now.
