The wood used to make this was once the roof parts of a barn. They are solid red oak and at least a couple hundred years old. I made this at the request of a friend. She was quite happy with it.

Man you did a great job on this chest! This looks like it was made 100 years ago and that’s a compliment. The hardware you used just adds to the character of this chest. A very nice job!

Welcome to Lumberjocks, the chest definitely has that solid rustic look to it, like it is as old as the wood youmade it from, and like it will be around for many more years. Thank you for sharing.

I love your chests. There’s something about a rough look that make me think if you accidently dent it … it don’t matter, it will still look great! It’s the ware on it that makes it a fine piece!
