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 job, good reuse of the feet. I’ll bet your daughter loves it.

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