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 ^^
