Heck, let’s don’t waste that nice chest for blankets, let’s put our hand tools in it.

Nice job!

That is one sweet chest! Nice job on the dovetails, bracket feet, heck – the whole build. How do you plan to finish it?, or are you going to leave it to darken naturally?

Great job! Really like the drawers on the bottom of the chest and the horizontal separations.

Thanks for the kind comments. The finish was BLO, Shellac, the top coat was wipe on non poly varnish. I didn’t take any pictures after it was finished and its no longer in my possession.

This project was done a couple of years ago and I’m just adding it to my LJ gallery.
