An early job that looks more and more embarassing as time goes on. As the wood darkens with age, the filler that I used becomes more and more obvious. It does hold a lot of bed clothes and can be camouflaged with cuddly toys, cushions, clothes etc.

Looks pretty good to me and it works for what you intended it to do. You should be proud of it – it is a nice chest!

If you don’t like you could always paint it. It looks good in the picture.

Looks good, Stanley, considering the rough wood you used. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the comments.

One of the issues was that the timber had got quite damp in the shop, which meant that all the biscuit joints dried back leaving me a bit worried about structural integrity and needing to use a lot of filler. I did not know about goop at the time.

I have indeed considered painting this piece if the oportunity arises.

This chest looks just fine. To be honest with you we tend to be our own worst critics. We have a natural tendency to focus on the flaws in our work rather than the successes. These imperfections often go unnoticed by the end users.

I agree with Motthunter. Don’t paint it. It looks good as it is.
