Cedar Chest

Project by Randy Moseley posted 508 days ago 1161 views 2 times favorited 17 comments Add to Favorites Watch

This cedar chest was made with 3/4” plywood with cedar veneer I made by resawing aromatic cedar and contact cementing it to the plywood. The trim pieces and handles are made of walnut. The inside is left unfinished to get the cedar scent. The pegs on the corners are pine. The exterior is finished with sanding sealer and lacquer, 2 sprayed coats each. The project if for a fund-raising silent auction for a county gardener program I’m involved in.

Everything is better with Cedar! Like the wood combination.

The sapwood and heart wood works very well. It is a nice change from the solid red cedar.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
