This is a short notice project for a close friend that will soon turn the big 5-0….....it’s a suprise party, so the intention is eveyone will jot down their favorite memories and drop them in te box for her eyes only…..
She really likes rustic stuff, and paints EVERTHING – and is quite good at it so I decided to leave it unfinished for her brush…..built from Cedar fence cutoffs.
It was built with the rough Cedar exterior, but in the end, I just couldn’t pull it off and had to sand it…....
Can’t say that I have ever really finished a project like this in one day, and it is no showpiece, but I think she will like it, especially when filled with her family and friends personal memories…......a real treasure chest.
Thanks for looking.
Edit – forgot to mention – I was going to do the box in hand cut dovetails, and pic 5 shows the practice piece, but decided to wait for the next one…
