This chest is basically the same as the one I posted about 10 days ago with what I think is a big improvement: The “frame” is made from 1 1/4” stock rather than the 5/8” used for the first one. I figured that I have 2 granddaughters moving into their own rooms in their new house soon (I hope) so I needed 2 chests! The story behind the frame stock bears telling. When we built their first house we bought 2 bundles of that reject lumber from Lowes. This stock is the reject (too warped,twisted,crappy) from the reject bundles! Finished with shellac like #1.
