Approximately 20 years ago a family bought a cedar chest with the idea of refinishing it. Which after the 20 years of it taking up space they gave it to me the “woodworker”. Because he realized he was not going to finish it, and knew I would. Every board on the chest was separating. I ripped the whole thing a part removed the finish and put it together.

A lot of work that turned out very well.

The inside back-corner reinforcements are essential I bet.
