I’ve been hanging around for a while and figured it’s time I posted something. These are Keeping Chests ala Charles Neil. I made them for Christmas for myself, my brothers, and my sister to keep my older brother’s ashes in. I reduced the original size down to 12×6x6. Making those tiny bracket feet were fun. 3 of them were out of Curly Cherry, 1 was Flame Birch, and 1 was Tiger Maple. They were all dyed using a mixture of General Finishes Dyes, then finished with 1 coat of Seal A Cell , followed by 5 or 6 coats of Arm R Seal. Needless to say it made for an emotional Christmas.
