So just finished this Cedar Chest. It made from 1inch Cherry, frame and Panel Jointery with a Cedar panels on the bottom and the shelf that goes inside.

I got the idea from WoodSmith Magazine, issue #214

Nice work, beautiful looking chest. I like the natural cherry, and it’ll get more beautiful with age.

Cool chest, especially with the tray. Great style. Those style hinges are awesome.

That should survive the apocalypse! I appreciate that you made something so sturdy while avoiding having it look clunky.

Great looking chest, got to love cherry. I am going to start building a chest like this, what did you use for a finish? Thanks for sharing, Bob

Actually I just used Danish oil. I’m not the best with finishes. So worked out.

Thanks everyone for kind remarks

I have seen this chest. Very nice. Did you use the rockler hinges? I wanted to use those but my plywood banded top was 17lb and would have cost 90$ to put three hinges on. Great work!

Yes, they are the rockler hinges. They are awesome, but Yes, expensive :/
