Finally complete and delivered to the Clearwater Gallery. These two quilt chests are a quarter the size of the early Captian’s Sea chest that provided the original inspiration. They are pegged mortise and tenon frame and panel construction. Steamed cherry solids and cherry veneer plywood panels with aromatic red cedar planking on the bottom. Finish is hand rubbed oil and wax. Thanks to all those that followed my cherry chest blog and provided advice and encouragement.

Udate to answer a question. These are being sold as is and not painted.

David, thanks for showing this wonderful project, I’ve enjoyed every step of the journey.

The chests are beautiful, the warmth of the Cherry and your meticulous attention to detail has resulted in two exceptional pieces.

[Sorry, can’t give you my ”I just love small wooden boxes” comment because these are too big for the small box category. LOL]
Thanks.

I love your work David. These came out beautiful.

I don’t know if I mentioned it before but I may have been to the Clearwater Gallery a number of years ago. I know we hit most of the galleries in Sisters. My niece was married on the Mackenzie River (the place with the teepees) and the next day we drove a roundabout route (up over the lava fields) to get back to Portland. We just happened upon Sisters and my wife loved the town so we spent a good part of the afternoon exploring. Beautiful area.

All of this Oregon talk is making me home sick. I grew up on the Mackenzie river.

Beautiful work as always, David! Your precision in design, layout and building has been wonderful to see. And the way you extensively document with description and photo, is very educational. You are blessed with family members that obviously support your hobby. That in itself is wonderful to see. Just great projects! Thanks for sharing them and their construction.

I just love these. Your work is really crisp as always.

The cherry and black walnut plugs are a favorite of mine.
