Commissioned to build for a young lady in church. First full size Cedar Hope Chest that I have built:) Learned to use the glue joint bit, and the double lock miter bit. Took a few test runs to get them right ;) Used Watco semi-gloss clear lacquer for the finish. I completed this in September, I forgot to update the camera date :(

Your chest is a work of art. Nice job!

Yeah, those glue joint bits are quite a test of paitence – but once you get it, they arn’t too bad.

Beautiful chest! I am looking to build something similar for my wife. Did you work from a plan or design this yourself? If you don’t mind me asking, what kind of joinery did you use for the fronts and sides? Did you custom route the moulding?

Have your say...
