I finished building this cherry quilt chest for my wife a few weeks ago, it has been either too cold or wet outside for finishing. Great weather today so I put the last coat of finish on and let it sit out in the sun to dry. It measures 44” wide, 22”deep, 24” tall. The bottom and lid are too wide for the planer so they were flattened and smoothed with hand planes and a card scraper. There is some curl in this wood, beautiful but quite a challenge dealing with tear-out.
That’s Fender the part time shop dog in the last pic, he was quite pleased with the results or possibly it was the warm sunshine.
