I can only guess that when you say photoshopped, you are just talking about cropping the picture… That said, After reading the first part, about your indecision (at first) about whether to keep the piece or not, that I was happy that you realized that you can’t EVER part with these heirlooms.

I’m not positive, but did you mention the types of wood used? Do you even know? From the looks of the top, it looks a bit like Walnut and maple, but who knows. What will you make the “new” hope chest out of, as, in addition to what you already have shown us.

I possess ONE piece of a set that I’ve been told (the rest) will be left to me, of a cedar bedroom set, that my great grandfather built back in the mid 50’s, as well as a teak (with laminated top) “homework” desk, made around the same time. The reason I still have them is that They mean more than any monetary amount could ever mean to me.

Well the photoshopping is a crop and then i tried to get the table to stand out better by lightening the background with a extremely quick fence so the edges of the table kinda got funky looking but thats just my anal photoshopping pet peeves lol..

The table is made of pine and mahogany, the only new wood will be the box of the new and reformed chest which is cabinet grade birch plywood. Now that i have everything cut apart and mostly sanded down i realize i’m going to have enough left over for matching nightstands, thats for another time. Wifes b-day is tomorrow and she already was informed she won’t be getting it until her party on sunday hee hee mann i’m horrible about getting things done on time.

Anyway thanks for commenting hope that shed some light on what you were inquiring about, when i get this done i’ll get it all posted up, have a good day..
