Thank you for the comments, the cedar came from the Branson, MO area where I used to live (sigh), the feet are off an old discarded chest of unkown origins. I really like working with cedar except for the sneezing almost like walnut. =8’]

Nice looking chest. Are there really two different ones there. The first picture seems to be diffferent from the rest of the pictures.
