A cedar chest we made with the customer’s name burned into the lid. 36” L X 18” Deep & 20” tall. with a poly satin finish. I am not sure if I like the satin finish better or the gloss finish, the satin finish looks a little more elegant to me.

Beautiful chest. I agree that the satin finish looks best – the high gloss always makes wood look like plastic AND it shows fingerprints and smudges and scratches. At least that is my opinion.

Thanks for sharing.
