Cedar chest I made for a family friend hope it will pay for the metal for my new fence and rails project on my tablesaws. Defenetly going to start using wood plugs over putty so they will match. put 4 coats of watco danish oil in medium walnut on it. This is made out of 5/4 cedar decking i bought that was culls from Lowes. dont think it turnes out half bad for all cull wood.

i use the 5/4 decking on my chairs, benches and swings. gives it a more solid feel. also culls from local store. nice looking project.

I really like the look of the Cedar chest, simple yet elegant.

i like it, david. nice job. i’m a big fan of the cull wood, too. i’m about ready to build a second toy chest for my kids – small house and we need to put things AWAY. this would be a good one to consider. did you design it on your own or use a plan? if a plan – from where? i like how the top is framed and appears as if it could hold a bench cushion in place or something.
