This cedar chest stands 30” tall X 18” deep X 36” long. The drawer is 30” X 15” deep X 6” tall. This is the only 2nd one I have made like this, but I have to say I really enjoy making these.

I enjoy the aromatic cedar for its looks and smell. I very much like the end caped log legs and front drawer log! Are those cedar also? Unfortunately it is difficult to find nice thick cedar wood planks or logs, even in the specialty wood stores. When I do, the planks are typically cracked. I wouldn’t know what a cedar log looks like, never seen one in person! I live where there is an abundance of non-indigenous mesquite!
Very nice Hi-Boy!~Suzanne

The color of your cedar projects is fantastice, not at all like the western red here, will have to take the time soon to look at all your projects. Very nice rustic design.

I really like all of your cedar stuff. I have a good bit of it sitting in the barn just waiting to get put to use now that its had time to dry. Need to get on it!
