Toy Chest

This my first attempt at a chest. The sides and top are of 1” thick “Giant Sequoia Redwood”. 1 piece, no joining. All the material started out as logs in my yard, I milled them down with an alaskan mill and went from there. The corners are oak, also from log strock (this one fell about 3 years ago in my back yard). The “wood spirit” carvings on the front came from a friend in Tennesse.

I’m a retired stonemason, who has always enjoyed working with wood, so don’t be too hard on me with any comments. This is also my first listing.

Welcome to LJ! Great first post, very nice job. It sure looks like you’ve done this before. I’ll bet it’s heavy!

I’m thinking this is too nice to end up as a Toy Chest. The kids will be happy with this. Nice build.

You have already met all qualifications here. Love working with wood, use what mother nature give us & did your best. Nobody is overly critical here. If we were this site wouldn’t be growing as fast as it is. If you have questions check out the forums. Very good. Love the chest.
