Wow! Very nice. Did you do all the scroll work at the same time or do them individual. I’ve noticed a lot of nice scroll work on the site lately and this project is right up there with the best of them.- JJ

The four scolled pieces on the front and sides are exactly the same and were stack cut. Then the two on top are the same and they, too, were stack cut. That makes two cutting of stacked material, one with four in the stack, one with three. That’s right three. For the pieces for the top, there were only to be two. Sometimes when I’m stack cutting something that I only need a couple of, I’ll throw in an extra piece, giving me the extra piece. Then I can pick out the best of the three for the project. Or if one gets broken, I have an extra. Then, like the case of this project, if all three turn out good, I have an extra to do something with. I’ll create something out of that extra piece in a few days maybe.

Wow, it did turn out great, I might have to revisit using more cedar in my chests. I always thought if you look at cedar wrong, it would mar, dent, and scratch.
Overall great job andI look forward for more of your projects in the future.

I agree with you on the cedar, I built a solid aromatic cedar chest for my mother in 1956 2’ high X 2’ wide X5’ long finished with 3 coats of hand rubbed shellac topped with 3 coats of hand rubbed lacquer, then pumicestoned and Johnson paste wax finish. I had to let the finish cure for 60 days before we could set anythingon it. My niece was given the chest when my mother passed away and it is still in great shape.
