      Thank you for your help.
      The drawings From Oseberg Fundet 2 are the closest to what I was looking for.
      I'm not sure I could duplicate the lock, but the rest should be do-able.
      However, I have a few questions on details:
      WHat metal was used for the strapping and nails?
      What wood was used?(I'll probably use ash if not given a better suggestions)
      Was there handles used?
      What would the hinges look like?
      From looking at the side detail, it looks like the back of the box is square
      and the front is angled. Is that accurate?
       
       
      Thank you!!
