Wanted to build my wife a cedar quilt chest to match the one I built for her mother earlier in the year. Did try to apply some of the lessons I learned on the first one during this build as well as trying a couple of new things. 40” x 18” with a wipe on poly finish. The original plan was to give it to her as a Christmas present but its pretty hard to hide something of this size….lol My friend who runs the saw mill wants two of them for his daughter-n-laws so I told him if he would supply the cedar I would be happy to build them for him. He has helped me out alot and would never accept a dime. He has so far refused my offer because he doesnt want them if he “cant pay me for my time”. I have tried to explain to him I dont woodwork for money. I have this silly notion that as soon as I start doing that, it will go from being a stress releaving hobby to a job. The negotiations continue….lol.
