I made this hope chest out of red oak and stained it with red oak stain and used wipe on polly. I enjoyed doing this project. I am not sure what i will make next it might be a while.

Monty, this is great looking chest. She will love it. I walked around an Ashley furniture store a few weeks back and I cant say I seen a chest that would come close to the looks or the construction of this one . Very good build.

Great build!

(Alistair, I don’t think it is polite to tell a man that his wife has a nice chest!) :-)

How can you top Alistair’s comment! lol. Monty, great job on the chest. I like your detail on the legs. I’m sure you will think of something for another project. Keep them coming.

A great looking hope chest. Nice job on the finish. And I see cedar lined.
