This is the School Chest as described in the book “The Joiner and the Cabinet maker” (Lost Art Press)
This is all handtool work done in clear air dried pine i picked up at a local mill.
The finish is Old Fashioned Milk Paint in the Driftwood color, followed by BLO and wax. As you can see in the 4th picture, the stages of applying a milkpaint finish go from “what have I done!!” to “wow, that looks great” This was a fun project and I will definitely be building another.
