Re: [MedievalSawdust] Conals Stacking chests
I have some german books about late medieval chests and would like to build
according to their drawings.
I have done some woodworking and have contacts to a semiprofessional
woodshop that I can use on weekends.
For chest A, in german "Seitenstollentruhe", I have some experience and for
chest b, in german "Frontstollentruhe", I hope I can do with the plans of
the books and some photos I have taken.
NTL I have to look for clamps and perhaps hinges. IIRC chest a comes
sometimes with wooden hinges.
Will be back later with sizes.
BTW Has someone experiences with a gunners chest, small to medium sometimes
painted chest, with a roof top. Sources? Paintings? Documented plans?
