Lots of detail work here. Krenov would be proud! I’m thinking this little chest has all the details of a larger piece and it may have been a practice piece for apprentices working with handtools? I’m thinking I have to think small when practicing. Almost a 2/3rds miniture for a prototype?

Nice detail, what are you using to finish the piece?

Another great video and project. Why is it called a Scotch chest?

Very nice work. Do you keep your scotch in it?

Great video. I really enjoy the delicate nature of these sorts of projects. And on the plus side, you can use very expensive wood if you like since there’s not much to buy.

Have your say...
