I am ‘trying’ to make a Hope Chest of Walnut End Grain blocks with cedar lining on the inside. The first picture is of one of the end panels. The second is of the pieces I am making the front,back and top out of. This will take some time because paying work keeps getting in the way.
I cut the cants from some smaller logs I have here with my small mill. I then dried the blocks in the microwave and glued them up onto the inside cedar lining. Few if any cracks in these blocks. I’m more excited abt that than the Chest.. ;)
The blocks are 4” square and 3/8” thick.
