I did this project several years ago (around 1988) when I had only just started trying my hand at woodworking. I bought this old chest for twenty five dollars and I got the 6 layers of paint at no additional charge!
After stripping I found that Bondo had been used to fill a large area of missing veneer on the front of one drawer. I removed the patch and made a semi successful attempt at veneering. Looking at the results it is clear that I had a lot to learn. No doubt I still do, but the chest looks presentable and has served us well for over 20 years, surviving many moves.
Although I did not do a first quality job, I did make an attempt and from that effort I learned and improved. On occasion it is nice to look at it and reflect on just how much I have learned. Much of that knowledge gained from LJ’s and their postings. My woodworking journey has been as much fun as the eventual destination.
Thanks for looking.
