For those of you who offered advice and inspiration in the completion of this project, I thank you.

For those of you who wished to see the finished product here it is minus a couple brass decorative pieces for the backsplash.

From now on if I do a backsplash, it will remain stationary and not open with the lid. You have to keep this chest back from the wall about 4 inches to open it.

I did clean my camera lens finally so those spots should be gone now.

Well honk my hooter! That turned out better than I could have imagined. Absolutely beautiful choice of hardware and expertly finished. You shouldn’t tease us so much, Russell…you knew it’d look great all along, didn’t you?

Cosmic, this is about as much faith as I’ve had in 54 years. I really thought I threw 200$ worth padauk away.

I knew you’d pull the chestnut (or insert type of wood here), out of the fire.

Ya done good and it looks as handy as a pocket on a shirt!

That has basically three coats of wipe on poly, the oak has chestnut jel-stain. Nothing else. I think the padauk shines with just top coat.
