Recently I started a Hickory Chest Project. This chest will feature raised panels as well as a cedar lining. I have been videoing the build. To share with viewers who might like to watch. I’m right at the point of getting ready for the finish. But before i do, I want to pose a question to my fellow Lumber Jock’s… Here is a picture of the Chest. It has some cool features. ( beetle bore holes, knots, etc.) Id like to showcase in the project. With that being said. Here is my question to you all. If it were you building the chest, Would you clear coat it, or stain it? I’m thinking a clear lacquer finish… but Id like your opinion.
Also if you would like to watch the build of this chest. You can see the videos at A Simple Design of Ocala
