Had a bunch of these narrow strips alreadymilled to thickness with eased edges so decided to try a chest using them in a vertical configuration. It was an experiment and is still the only chest I have built like this. Lacquer for finish

Just thinking out of a different box!

I like it. I also like the use of wod that is just taking up room becoming very useful.

Hi Chad—

A question. Did you finish the inside and the outside of the chest with lacquer? If so, can you still smell the cedar?

Thanks.

No sir I never finish the inside of a cedar chest because it would seal in the smell. Left unfinished it retains its smell and insect repellent qualities. When the smell fades, lightly sand. Smells like the day it was built.

I really like the look of that chest – much more interesting than the run of the mill varieties.

Have your say...
