A buddy of mine asked me if I would build his 3 daughter in law’s some cedar chests for Christmas and i told him absolutely…. Steve is the kind of fellow who will do almost anything to help a friend (he brought a bobcat over to help us clean up after the tornado damage two weeks ago and wouldn’t even let me buy him lunch) so how could I say no to a fellow like that??? Anywho, I thought that if I could do those three why not do four and give the last to my daughter and what’s his name for Christmas. Been working on these on and off for the past several months using some cedar that my nephew and I had reclaimed out of an early 1900’s farmhouse. Instead of feet on this one, I made some three bead trim pieces on the router table and used them for the base. Brass handles and piano hinges to contrast with the cedar and finished with clear gloss polyurethane.
