This is the first Christmas present for the upcoming holiday season!
Made of Maple and Walnut, with the bottom of aromatic cedar.
The corners are joined via sliding dovetails, the rest is frame and panel construction.
The lid is breadboard capped and pinned with square pegs.
This particular chest is a gift for a young male, so I was going for a somewhat masculine design.
The top of the chest was designed as a loose interpretation of the stripes found on the late 60’s Camaro’s.
The internal/removeable tray is a contrasting design.
This was my own design and I pretty much made it up as I went along for the most part…..
It was a very satisfying project…..kept me out of the house and off the streets for a while and during the process I made some new friends…...the duck community from the pond behind my shop visited me for snacks everytime I worked on the project.
Thanks for looking.
