This is a second build based off my first Navy Sea Chest. This one is 25% smaller at 19W x 36L x 17H. It was built using Black Walnut, Eastern Red Cedar, and Ash for the pegs. The finish is wipe-on poly applied with foam brushes, rubbed down with 0000 steel wool between coats.

There’s something about walnut I just love. It is easy to work and beautiful after finishing. Enjoy!

That is frickin awesome. I’ve seen some sea chest go for as much as $1200 and they’re made of pine How much would something like this fetch for?

This project is gorgeous… Wondering if the builder had plans available for others to work off of. I will be retiring at the end of next year, looking to possibly build one.

Have your say...
