Took apart an old bed frame
And a pine waterbed base
Recycle all the parts into a Frame & Panel Chest. Frames were Oak from the bed frames, raised panels are from the waterbed base. I think I needed one or two extra boards from a stash of barn siding. Raised the panels using just a handplane. Scrollsaw to make keepers to hold two full sized saws into the lid. Lid is about 33-5/8” long, by 17-3/8” wide. Added some trim pieces from the head board to make a dust seal around the lid. One piece is across the back, to keep the lid from tipping on over the back.
Have gotten a start on making some tool stowage in the bottom. Floor is just three pine boards.
Box itself is about 31-1/2” long (snug fit to the dust seal) by 16-1/8 wide. Overall, it stands at 23-3/8” tall.
Finish is a blend of Varnish/BLO/ and a washed out walnut stain.
Reuse, reclaim, recycle.
