Okay living in an apartment is not easy, there is not a lot of room so I do cuts on my back deck an everything else I do inside on the table, My wife is really understanding. So this project is a chest made out of 5/4 #2 pine. I wanted the rugged look an I have a lot of interior work to do on this, I will show the finish project when I complete it.

We are in the same boat my friend, as are a lot of other woodworkers… not enough space… working with what you have is sometimes tough… My wife is also very understanding of my many projects having to come indoors, especially in the Seattle rain. We are building a shed so hopefully some of this can work itself out. Nice job on the chest; can’t wait to post some of my own projects when I get a working camera. Are you planning on staining it or is it a natural look?

Nice work. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. You just showed how true the saying is. Keep up with the good work.

Looks as though you have a very good start, waiting for finish photos.

Nice work so far, I’m anxious to see how it turns out and your commentary on it. I have been eyeballing making that chest myself!

Oh, do you plan to do the wood banding and hot pipe bending the article suggests?
