This was made for a friend to give to his wife. She wanted it made of red cedar and I lined it with aromatic cedar. Copied the simple lines from other furniture that will be in the same room.

thanks for looking

Good looking chest, and a wonderful lining. I like those padded sawhorses to protect your projects once they
are in the finishing stage.
