A reclaimed chest made from a white cedar tree, walnut scraps. The cedar had large defects which I filled with turquoise inlay (not sure if this was the best choice, but I went with it). The chest is 30” by 14” by 16” and it came from a tree in someone’s yard. I had the boards sitting in my workshop not knowing what to do with it, so I built this. Not sure if I will do it again since it doesn’t take much to dent or scratch the surface. Anybody have any suggestions on what finish to use on soft cedar wood to protect from scratches? I am donating this chest to a silent auction charity and I hope someone likes the rustic look of this chest.
