I think it was his first book. The one with the rocking horse.

A look at the wood supply for a project like this. Price? Just the gas to haul it to the shop.

It’s a nice looking chest and the wood is beautiful.

Daughter is STILL using this old chest! Keeps it filled up. Has survived a house fire that totaled the other half of the place she was renting. Still staying intact, not too bad for a hacked together project out of old Barn Wood..
