Dear Lee Valley,

I have been a Lee Valley customer for perhaps 20+ years and have appreciated the service that you have provided throughout. You have made an effort to seek out answers to many bizarre questions.

Below I provide an example of one item that I just completed in time to give it to my wife for Christmas. Unfortunately, the original schedule was for three Christmases ago.

She will not endorse any of my projects anymore, as she sees them as an excuse to buy more Lee Valley tools. Her anxiety has increased since you opened a store in Waterloo, Ontario.

The silver chest actually uses some design features from your silver-chest plans that I used several years ago to make the first chest out of curly maple. This chest is based on a picture of one in Taunton's Treasure Chests (page 35), designed by Brent Merkley. I contacted him and asked if he had plans, which he did not. As a result, I took many liberties and it evolved into something rather different.

It was a challenge to complete, as there was a lot of learning to do and Lee Valley tools to buy.
