Viking Chest

It's a little (ok, more than a little) of topic, but I found an artical on making a viking chest while doing some other research. I know there are quite a few people who hang around here who might find it interesting.

COOL!

I once made a copy of the Viking bed that was unearthed at Oseberg (I think that was where). The constuction techniques were really neat.

Dang! Now you've given me one of those "other" need to do projects. Guess Ill just have to dinf more "spare" time. O yeah!

Was reading about the "other" Drouillard last night in a new abridged version of the Journals. Very Interesting.

Thanks alot. It has been my plan to sell all of my presentation class knives in their own wooden boxes and this would be great for my Seaxes. I am really suprised though that the original box would not have had any carving on it.

I have made a couple from this design, works pretty well. If you go for the sloped sides (which makes them stackable) it makes it a lot tougher. The banding an corner braces are pretty easy to make from steel sheet (and can cover a multitude of carpentry sins) and you can whip out a pretty neat set of hinges from bar stock, even without a forge (file drill and hacksaw) if you have to.
