This is a chest I have been making for a friends retirement. There are some blog entries posted on the progress but this is the finished product. The frame of the box is made of ash and the panels and lid are made of quartersawn sapele. There are three additional boxes that go inside this chest: A flag display, a shadowbox and a coin display. I’ll post them up when I have decent pictures. The chest was kept covered before and during the ceremony and was unveiled near the end. It gathered many nice comments and just about everyone had to come up after the ceremony and give it a touch, ask questions and just appreciate it in general. Heck one guy even offered me five goats if I’d build him one!
Thanks for looking!
