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.
