So, I'm not sure if this qualifies as a chest.  It's a cross between a foot locker and coffee table.   The customer wanted something in the  bedroom to store blankets and shoes.  I really like how this cherry and walnut custom piece turned out.  There are walnut butterfly joints that run all the way through (not just decorative).  The hinges will support up to 40 pounds, so they won't drop down on your fingers.  Overall a wonderful custom wood "chest".
