The last 2 pictures are of my wife’s blanket chest. It was lined on all sides, bottom, and top with aromatic cedar.

did you do all the inlay work. Very Nice. And how did you cut the curls in the bottom of the darker one. Thanks Don.

The bottom apron was cut on a bandsaw and cleaned up with an oscilating spindel sander. Yes I made the inlay of resawed ebony and yellow wood (cut to about 1/4” thick) and cut with a scrollsaw.
