This was one of my first projects after opening my new workshop. It is a Norm Abraham design, built from the Plan. I like a lot of Norms Projects, they have good clean lines, which are not too complicated to make. My customers like this, as it keeps there costs down.
The Timber is Swedish Pine, which is so clear, that I could not find any knot holes in the entire stock. The secondary wood is Fir (Christmas Trees – there is a lot of them here) and some minor material changes from the original drawing. The knobs are Norwegian Maple, which are handmade in the shop.
The Chest was sanded to 320 grit, then a hard wax floor polish was applied – two coats, which was rubbed out with 0000 steel wool. The final protection is to coats of Fiddes Supreme wax.
The Chest is in daily use at my home – this one is not for sale!
