OK, I was out on concrete for a show. Pictures aren’t good. Blue pine trunk with a Cedar lining. 22Tx20Dx34L. Very heavy. Needs a few more coats of polyurethane but I had to have it for display. 95 degrees today & 100 tomorrow.

Thanks for looking

One of the nice things about living in a tropical area! No extreme heat or cold here! I like what you’ve done here. I need to build a trunk.

Nice cedar chest Monte. Bet it smells good as well. It was 100 at 10 pm last night and predictions are it will get progressively hotter but it’s the drought that is really hurting us (2 years in a row). We are losing a lot of trees :(
