This was my first attempt at making a cedar chest and I learned a lot. All the dove tails are hand cut and I used old pine barn boards for most of the chest except the lid, trim, and one foot and lined the inside with cedar. Also I now have some new tools b/c I had to have them lol.

And yet another advantage of building things—-You just gotta have new tools and toys. And then you just gotta have a big shop to put them in!!

I like the chest. Hand cut dove tails are tough.

Thanks for sharing
