Here is a small chest I just finished , Its made from two board I pulled out of a stack of birch that I had ordered for a set of cabinets, I had never seen birch boards with that much disfigured grain before . They had been surfaced and had a lot of tear out. Used my wood master drum sander to sand out the tear out and smooth up all the end grain coming through the face of the boards. Had a hard time with the top, it was twisted. tried clamping and wetting and drying. nothing worked. I wound up ripping the top up in strips and gluing back twice before I got it flat, a lot more sanding. Made the little feet on the table saw All in all I think it turned out good. I like it. The chest is 21 1/2” long,13 1/4” wide and 13” tall Has a colonial Cherry stain, Whipping stain from Sherwin Williams and 4 coats of satin lacquer.
Hope its easy to your eyes.
