I built this chest a few years ago as an anniversary present for my wife to sit at the end of the bed and store extra blankets and pillows. This was my first real woodworking project and i had absolutly no idea what I was doing. It is by no means perfect (Look at how poorly chiseled out the hinge slots are, LOL!) but it looks pretty good and has so far stood the test of time.
Chest is built from knotty pone and finished with minwax stain and varnish.
Most important thing about this project it that it looks great from the outside and serves a useful purpose. I would have to say that this is what really got me into woodworking. Also, the wife really likes it :) Personally, im pretty happy with the finish.
The dog also likes it and felt she needed to be in the pictures so I took one of her to make her happy so she would bugger off and let me take the rest:
