Cedar Chest

 In American Woodworker Blog

Out of Aromatic Red Cedar.   I started with several rough sawn  8/4 by 6" wide boards.  milled down into something my small shop could work with.  "Plan" was for a chest that LOOKED like a small chest of drawers.    A top drawer would be a false drawer.     The top would then be a lid, opening up to show a cedar lined storage area.     Two small drawers in the bottom were to be real.     Frame and panel construction, with the panels "raised" using just two cuts on the tablesaw.   The two small drawers were also beveled to match the raised panels.    Small knobs added.   Just some knobs I bought at Menards, the smallest they had in stock.  Two bright brass hinges hold the lid/top.     Three coats of poly gloss were used.
