Small Oak chest built for a gift. Used up some of the figured red oak that I had been collecting. Lined with aromatic cedar. Pretty simple project but I am happy with the results.

All of the joints are amazing! What technique did you use for the dovetails?

Very beautiful and nicely built chest. I believe oak wood is a good companion to work with.

Fine joinery, and the wood is breathtaking! You are a master of the chest, I see! :)
