I wanted to make Keeping Chests for my youngest daughter and Mother but after seeing the one I made for my sister-in-law, they both said they didn’t have anywhere in their house(s) to put one “that big”. I decided to try making them each one at half-scale and this was the result. Box is 5×5 x 10. The wood is Curly Cherry (I know the bottom looks like tiger maple but I promise you it’s curly cherry…....and if you’re willing to pay $20.00/bf, I can point you to the source for wood that highly figured!). Also, the feet do not look as bad (color/grain-wise), as they seem to be in the pictures. The only explanation I have for them looking that way in the pictures is I have a flourescent light about 4” above my head as I’m standing in front of the chest taking the pictures. Natural Finish with Arm-R-Seal topcoat.
