Built this from a plan out of Wood Magazine. I consider this my first real test of skill using traditional joinery. Everything came out square with only a couple of minor imperfections which aren’t really noticeable. I bought the feet from Home Depot. Although they look and work fine with no issues I ordered 9 of them and they were all different heights! So next time I’ll pay the extra $1.23 and buy from Osborn.

that is absolutely stunning. I really like the bkp natural, it’s already stained so it doesn’t need help

You did a wonderful job on this chest and that wood is very special. Nice work and congratulations on joining Lumberjocks.
