I don't recall where I got the the plans, I believe it was one of the wood-working magazines. All the hardware came from Rockler. It was originally supposed to have a rounded top like an old steamer trunk, but the wife wanted it flat. I didn't complain because it made my job easier. I had to remove the lock from the trunk as my grandson kept locking it and I can't find the key. That pic was taken two days ago, I still have the trim work to complete.
