Inspired from fine woodworking and Dave from Lumberjocks “Red Oak Chest”. My skills weren’t quite ready to take a chest of this magnitude, especially with the 3 degree tilt. I need to figure out how to keep the glue off the plywood, because I was unable to remove it. I used Congolo Alves (tigerwood) because I found a bunch in a dumpster near work, the finish is Tung oil.

Absolutely beautiful. I really like it. To think that you actually found material in a dumpster that I would have to pay an arm and a leg for…goose bumps…WOW!!

Well I found quite a bit of boards around 3 feet x 4 inches but most where around 15inches. I ruined most of the good boards making bad cuts, and had to go buy new ones from the lumber yard. It was on sale for 5.75 a board foot (roughly $60 bucks).

Great work, and recovery of lost treasures. Good to know I’m not the only one diging in dumpsters!

There must be at least 3 now. My little brother told me today he is hanging some nice wooden bifold doors he found in a dumpster :-)

This is a very nice chest! Great find on the wood!
