I seem to be waiting on deliveries more and more these days. I have about 6 exotic woods on order and I have no idea when they will arrive.
I started on a Cherry chest back in Nov. I have the chest built but wanted to do something special for the lid. Today I picked up a padauk boards with curly grain and some curly cherry. I am going to do some design with these two woods on the lid.
The chest box has mitered corners and was made to have a very clean look for a box. The walls are 2 inches thick and it’s lined with cedar. It’s very heavy and I think I’ll use it in my front room until I make our walnut furniture then it wont match very well so I’ll sell it after I construct one from walnut.
