This is a sea chest inspired by Denis Hambucken’s “Early American Country Furniture.” It’s made of tulip poplar from the BORG. All of the work was done with hand tools. The hinges are from hammeredhinges.com; the washcoat is milk paint from Old Fashioned Milk Paint. My son is now using this as a toy chest; I’ve hidden a surprise for him in the chest’s secret compartment, but he’ll have to find it on his own. He’ll be pleased as punch when he finds it!
By the way, Hambucken’s book contains the nicest exploded drawings I’ve come across. If I recall correctly, he’s a professional illustrator of some sort, and it shows in his work. The book has some nice projects and is a great read.
