This chest was made for our granddaughter as a Christmas gift – she loved it and hopefully will have it for many years to come. This is made of Hickory with a laquer finish.

It’s very nice and will make a wonderful gift. Welcome to Lumberjocks, BTW.

Beautiful, well crafted chest, Hickory is hard wood, was it dificult to cut, any chip out or anything?, Great job on this, she will treasure it always, thanks for sharing

I like it, I build chests and trunks out of reclaimed, materials and I like looking at other people’s creations. I do like hickory. I am always arguing with myself whether or not a chest or trunk needs handles. Nice job on your chest, I am sure your granddaughter will like this.

Interesting beached boat coffee table on your other projects.

David the dimensions on the chest are as follows – 46” x 17” x 24”. We hope your daughter enjoys her chest and can’t wait to see the finished project.
