Medieval Chest

25 Dec

This was a chest I made for a medieval re-enactment group I was in years ago. It’s not overly accurate to any particular time frame, and as such could not be used in my current group.

It is constructed out of rough cut poplar wood, with some steel bracers on the corners. I used rustic looking masonry nails to hold the metal to the wood. I mis-judged the top by about 2 inches, so it’s a little short, but by pure good luck, my longsword sat nicely in it.
