Cedar Chest

Started with barely S2S cedar from the Home Depot cull bin. Turned it into a cedar chest. It’s not perfect; there are flaws that drive me crazy, but I don’t think anyone but a woodworker would notice them. But all said and done, I think it’s a nice piece for about $20 in wood, $10 in hardware, and a little more than a weekend’s worth of work.

Can’t beat the price! I think the knots give a nice rustic look to it. Thanks for sharing!

I just made one from cedar fencing. It’s a bit thin after planing and joining which makes glue-ups tricky, but I used a floating panel design so I only had to glue-up the top.

That’s a lovely chest. I really wanted to make mine frame and panel, but a time crunch forced me to dumb it down with pocket screwed butt joints.
