These are two chests that I just did this summer for a couple of wedding presents. The chests are built to a size that would be great for sitting them by the entryway to sit on and change your shoes. They can use them however they want though. I already delivered the hickory chest and will give the curly maple chest to my cousin and his wife very soon! I hope they like it!
The hickory chest was for a college friend of mine. The curly maple one is for my cousin/college roommate and his wife to be. The panels of the curly chest is some spalted or ambrosia maple that happened to be curly. I re-sawed the panels ,on my table and band saw in order to have some sort of matching appeal. The finish on the hickory is just BLO, the finish on the Curly maple is BLO, several coats of polyurethane, and a top coat of butcher’s wax.
Please, I’d love to hear your comments, concerns, criticism, ideas or just jabber. :)
