This cedar lined chest is by no means perfect. But some times to make something unusual; you may have to make it practical until you figure out all the kinks before it becomes a masterpiece. Please don’t copy as it has taken me since October of last year to make this dream come through:

I like it and don’t worry, I won’t copy it.

You are aware that sooner or later somebody will find that picture on Google images and copy it, right? Hope you’re okay with that because it’s the nature of the net.

But I suspect you’ll have come up with an even better version by then.

JAAune, Yes, no problemo with creating a variation of this. As I said, it takes a long time to come up with something new like this; in my case several months. Just appreciate giving credit where credit is due. There is no way in Heaven I can sell this to compensate 8 months of work.

You said masterpiece. I must agree. Amazing. I could take a decade and still not come up with a piece that original in style, design, engineering, and artistic merit.

Huzzah!

Buckethead,

Sounds like a good idea but this is not a project page and only project pages can be in the daily top three.

Try commenting on it here

Thanks guys,
Ken, Out side is all Cherry and walnut. The hinges are Oak. Inside and the bottom of the lid are cedar.
