This was a FWW project with some modifications. The Chest is made from curly maple and cherry, and has an aromatic cedar floor.

Great looking chest. I also would like to know how it is finished. It has a nice luster to it.

Beautiful chest, and a pretty combination of wood that should continue to look even better over time! I like the wedged tenon detail, as well as the raised panel look to add a bit of depth between the maple and cherry. I haven’t looked at the FWW project, so I’m curious as to what changes/modifications you made here?

I finished it with tung oil, but then decided to add poly u for better protection.

I modified the size to fit where I wanted it, and adjusted the proportions on the frames/panels. I don’t recall if FWW used cedar or how much inside. I modified the size to fit where I wanted it, and adjusted the proportions on the frames/panels. I don’t recall if FWW used cedar or how much inside.

OK, so then size modifications, rather than design modifications. You literally modified the size and built it to fit your needs/space. Certainly one of the major advantages to building your own furniture. Once again, nice work!
