Made this for a community fund raiser auction. Made from Genuine Mahogany I found on Craig’s list with Ebony splines and plugs and lined with Incense Cedar. The lid handle and lifting handles are my own design. I hated to let it go. If I can find more wood like this I will build one for my own home.

Sweet looking chest. Outstanding craftsmanship all around. Can’t go wrong with Greene and Greene. And you nailed it.

Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

Ken,

With all the fine workmanship—and the beautiful mahogany, ebony, and cedar—you put into that chest, I hope it brings in 5 digits!!

Ken,

The buyer got a real bargain! . . .but that was a considerable donation for the fund raiser.

Both true. It was $100.00 more than we were going to pay to keep it.

Looks great, I would have had a hard time letting that one go too!

total eye candy. How you let it go, is beyond me. I would have kept it to enjoy each day then used it as my casket :-)
