Walnut Chest

I built this walnut chest for my sister a couple of years ago. I’m a hobby woodworker and I’m inspired by others pictures so I thought I’d throw my design out there. The walnut used is somewhat sentimental as it came from my great-grandfathers farm in Iowa. Walnut is one of my favorite types of wood.

just plain -wow- !
I don’t do my walnut that much justice!
If i don’t get to milling it soon, i won’t even have a chance to ruin it with my woodwork tools!

Nice clean design and contrast between the frame and the panels. Personally,I think I would have kept the grain direction consistent (likely all vertical) on the panels.

Thanks everyone. There is a lot of talent on this site. Plenty of inspiration to try to improve. Dwight I agree that those panels should have been all vertical.

Have your say...
