That’s quite the impressive piece. I’m in the middle of trying to build a toy chest for my two boys – call it my first real project. Something tells me that when I’m done, it won’t look near as pretty as this.

Hi Russ! I have seen this chest in person and this picture doesn’t begin to show how pretty it is. The wood is amazing, wonderful color and wide. Hope Tyler is using it constantly.

The walnut came from an auction some 10 years ago. Bought 100 linear feet for $100.00 They were 14 feet long, minimum 20 inches wide.
I fine great deals,,, just bought 200 feet of tiger maple I split with my neighbor kenn… at $1.50 a foot,,,, kenn and I also about a year ago bought 400 board foot of cherry at $1.25 a foot if I remember correctly.
