I built a steamer chest for my one (1) year old goddaughter for Christmas.
It is the typical steamer chest, but it is a bit smaller (about 2/3 the size). Made of oak and walnut.
I didn’t like the way the top corners looked like on the plans so I modified them so, I mitered the corners just like the chest, to me I find it more appealing than having the end grain showing.
The chest was sealed with 2 coats of 50/50 Mineral Spirits/Minwax Polyurethane and finished with 3 coats of General’s Performance Satin Finish.
