Hello all!
This is my 1st posting on LJ, although i have been lurking for some time now. Many talented people here ^^ This project is actually 4 small chests i put together for fun. The original was a wedding gift for a very good friend to keep wedding cards and a few small trinkets from the wedding stashed in. A memory box to protect some treasures(hence the treasure chest inspired shape). From that i decided to make a few variations. All of these are made from pine since i am out of work atm and cannot really dive into many hardwoods.

2 are stained and 3 coats of polyurethane while 2 just have the poly. One of them has some bamboo pressed into a frame on the front for decoration. They aren’t exactly perfect, but i considered these the breaking in stage, since i hadn’t really built anything more than a shelf in years.

Thanks for viewing ^^

Welcome to LJ’s

Don’t just assume that because it’s pine it’s lower class. All wood can be the same, it’s passion and craftsmanship that makes the difference.

You did a good job on these.

Welcome to the projects page and I agree with Monte on the passion and craftsmanship. You did a great job on these and I really like the “pressed in” bamboo on the front. Nice job.
