A perfect marriage of form and function, this traditional hope chest is as useful in the den, dining room or hall as it is in the bedroom. The project is great for extra linens, but the large storage compartment and generous drawer work just as well for games, CDs, DVDs, scarves and mittens, table linens or almost anything else. And the handsome Craftsman style complements any decor.

If you adhere to these hope chest plans, the hope chest measures 36 inches long by 24 inches tall by 21 inches deep.

      Dear Thor,
      Thank you for contacting us. We are sorry to hear that you are having trouble downloading your Woodworking Plans. Below are a few things to try that we hope will resolve the problem. If you continue to experience the issue after completing these steps, please contact us again.

      Please review each of these steps to make sure your device is set up for the best viewing results.

      1. Our video content is best when viewed on a computer manufactured in the past couple of years with a good broadband Internet connection (not dial-up).

      2. The latest versions of Chrome or Windows Edge are recommended, and Firefox browser works as well. Please try logging in with a different browser as this will help us to determine if it is a website issue or specific to your device. Here are a few options to try:
      a. https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/
      b. https://microsoft-edge.en.softonic.com/
      c. http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

      3. Check to make sure your anti-virus software is not blocking our website. Unblock all websites.

      4. Make sure that your router’s software is up-to-date. You could also change the router channel and this is most helpful when you are running a 2.4GHz frequency because these can get congested with other appliances.

      5. Make sure that you do not have too many devices in your location using the internet at the same time (for example: cell phones, baby monitors, household appliances, etc.), due to the internet provider.

      6. Delete your internet history. Most web browsers use a feature called “caching” to display frequently used information, images, and web resources. Caching stores or “caches” this information on your computer so your computer doesn’t have to download the same information every time it visits the same webpage. Caching makes subsequent visits to the same website or webpage faster. In some cases, caching may have undesirable results. If a website or webpage has been updated since your last visit, your browser sees the update and then loads the new content instead of the old cached content. Sometimes however, this doesn’t work as expected and your browser displays the old information instead. To clear your cache, please click the below link and select the appropriate browser:

      After the above check list is complete, you should try viewing the video again. If the problem is still not resolved:
      1. If possible, try signing on to another device and attempt viewing the video. This will help us determine if the issue is with our website or specific to your device.
      2. If possible, send us a screen shot of the error message.
      3. Unfortunately, if it is a software (or hardware) issue, your problem may exceed our knowledge and area of expertise. Therefore, we recommend contacting the maker of your software (or hardware). You can try searching online, too, as many manufactures have solutions to common problems listed on their website.
      If you are still having trouble, contact us at 1-855-253-0822 so we can further assist you.
      We appreciate your business and will work hard to help you resolve this issue. Please contact us again if the issue is not resolved.
