All, it has been a great time stince I have joined up here on Lumberjocks and thank you so much for such great inspirational ideas. This is my last posting for a long while as I head back to Sea for 3 years and forward deploying to Afgan and off the coast of Africa (pirate patrol). So after this project it is time to break down the shop and save it for another day.
The chest is made from Texas Pecan and White Ash. I got the idea from Fine Woodworking but did not want to build the one they displayed but build one unique to my own design. The construction is all mortise and tenon (with through tenons). The panels are solid Ash and all from one board as you can see the grain wraps all the around the chest. The finish I am using is Danish Oil, Tung Oil, Wipe-on Poly and wax. I still have to make the sliding drawer for the interior.
I will post final pictures once completed and again thank you guys and Ladies for such a great time and see you again soon.
