clear vertical “grade” is actually C V Grain
Very well done and nice color combo : )

Dusty – Thanks for comments. You are right about the grade.
Where I come from we refer to it as CVG, I just didn’t know
how many people would know that. I’m used to conversing with
people who are not familiar with any lumber terms.

I’m in love. I have just started woodworking and have been trying to come up with a design for a chest. I have 3 girls id like to build for and if I may? I will definitely model on after this chest. The colors are amazing and I love dark wood like walnut.

Its simply amazing. Thank you so much for posting your pics.

-- When I think of something witty or wise I'll add it here!

If I hadn’t worked in lumber yards for over twenty years , I’m sure I wouldn’t have known what CVG stands for either : ) LOL
