A good friend came to me and asked me if I would build his retirement Seachest for him. Being asked to build a reminder of a fellow Seabees accomplishments through out his career is quite an honor. However time was barely on my side with this project, I put the last of the hardware on the morning of his retirement ceremony. However the hard work that my wife, a close friend and I put into it, made it all worth it by the look on his face when we presented it to him. I decided to build the Seachest out of Red Oak and place to Black Walnut inserts in the front. I lined the inside with Cedar.
