Another lodgepole chest made from our numerous dead or dying lodgepole pine. I usually avoid using pine and fir in my woodworking projects because of its softness, but I like the color or the blue staining wood. I love to create chests and I am always experimenting with reclaimed wood species. Most of my chests are proportioned wrong, but they tend to make them unique.
The handles are turned on the lathe and they have a solid feel to them as one picks up the chest. This will be raffled off at a fundraiser after it is stuffed with wine and goods.
I wish I could take better photos of my projects
