« Part 8: Glue ups & sanding continue and Top starts getting finish applied. Part 9 of Blondie's Bridal Chest series no next part

Just a quick update on Blondie’s Bridal Chest, she has been waiting for this to be finished for some time now. We are just finishing up construction on the front of the house. I have been pulled in 100 directions and have worked on this off and on for a while now. I am very close to being 100% complete. Cpl more coats of finish, rub it out and finish mounting the hinges. The cedar bottom is installed. Here are a Cpl pics of the 7th coat of finish.
Thx all comments welcome.

Oh and a pic of our new friend :>)

Quite a beautiful chest Ken. I love the wood choices and the finish looks perfect to me. I could almost smell the cedar shown in the interior photo!
