I made this Cedar Chest for a friend and his only request was it be made out of Cedar. So, I purchased my cedar from a local Amish lumber mill. The boards are all edge jointed. The front and back corners have rabbet joints to accommodate the end pieces. The lid is supported with a brass friction lid support. I incorporated a child proof locking system in the chest. The end handles were made from leftover cedar scraps. The chest has about 5 coats of lacquer applied. The chest measures 24” long by 12” deep by 12” wide.
