looking to build a trunk, like this: http://www.potterybarn.com/products/...-cubes-benches
because well its very expensive and i cant find any good how to guides through google, only thing i can find is a blanket chest. i already have leather leftover from another project and it looks like more than enough.
according to pottery barn site its a plywood box with zinc hardware. canvas inside covering and covered with leather. make a box outta plywood and cover with leather. sometimes to make the lid fit exact to the box. make a box complete then cut one side off of it and it will fit perfect.usually you can cut the hinge side first then attach the hinges and then cut the other 3 sides.
