Eat the kitty treats and you will “spend a night in the box’‘

Reclaimed honey locust tree made into a large Sea Chest. Walnut turned handles also from local trees. The top had wormy wood which I filled in with inlay. I am donating this chest for a silent auction and I will probably fill the inner till with chocolate gold coins, Mardi Gras beads and a bottle of wine.

The tree came out of one of our parks and I like the orange color of Honey locust wood

Just kidding about Marley spending a night in the box, it was just barely over an hour.

LOL RIGHT…Nice ! I like the honey locust tree. They planted a lot of them when they were greening Chicago. Very graceful trees.

Nice box.
I don’t see that pooch being a bad dog.
Looks like a friend for life.

Marley does not look hapy in the box!

Great build – thanks for sharing.

I had a giant 130 lb. black lab who passed last month. Mighty Joe. I don’t think he would have fit in that. Nice box, nice dog.

I’m not coming onto you or anything, but I really like your chest :-)

Is the inlay epoxy or some kind of stone?

Thanks for the compliments everyone,

Paulo, it is regular inlay epoxy. However I have always wanted to use a pretty blue glass bottle for the inlay the blueness of the glass tends to disapear as I grind it up.

Bet it was fun getting the dog to stay in the box long enough to take the picture. Treats were involved no doubt.
