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.

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.
