Another retirement chest for a fellow retiring shipmate. She served her country for 20+ years and not just any gift would do. Chest is made from Walnut and Ambrosia maple that I got from a farmer a few miles from my house. Cedar lined on the inside. The lid pattern is made from Sipo Mahogany, Spanish Cedar, and Hard Maple. The pattern design came from a blog entry from “Degoose” so much credit is deserved.
With the exception of a “Rotational” goof on the lid, really happy how it turned out. First time I have made raised panels so a new learning experience for me. Hopefully it will keep her Navy memorabilia safe for many years to come, and she can always look back at her commendable career.
