A reclaimed sea chest made out of river birch with walnut trim and handles. The chest has slots and bins for holding bottles of wine and chocolate. This will be put up for silent auction. The cost of materials was under $20 since the walnut was from the cast-off wood from sawmilled walnut log, and river birch from reclaimed cabinets. The cross is from some scrap paduk laying around my shop.
The walnut handles are glued up 6” x 6” x 1/4” walniut pieces in layers and then turned on the lathe.
My long suffering “shop dog” has to put up with the indignities of being a “size comparison object”.
