Made this gun chest for a friend. He wanted it to look like something a Grandma had in her house. He didn’t want any feet on the chest, which was fine with me So this is what he got. The chest is 46LX24TX20D and made of curly oak with dovetails and floating panel top. This was not a easy project due to the inherent instability of figured aok. Most of the planing was done by hand. I spent a lot of time with my low angle smoothing plane and cabinet scrapers. The interior is done in billard green felt. I made the hinges and handles from oak also. The finish is Tung oil buffed with hand rubbed poly. I will post some better pics tonight. The camera on my phone isn’t the greatest.
