Here is a quick update on the cedar chest. The old finish has been almost completely removed. I have a little work to do to clean up the bottom.
Additionally, after researching the manufacturer, we decided that I would replace the missing legs. Quite frankly, some of the pictures of cedar cabinets I found on the internet have unattractive legs.
What I proposed to do is to make legs that are similar to the design of the detailed spindles that are on the front of the cabinet.
First I will measure the spindle to get the proper proportions. Next I will do a rough drawing using AutoCAD Lite.
I will probably make the legs from cherry. That means a trip to the mill.
I will be offline for the next several weeks. I should be back in the woodshop around the middle of December. More posts to follow.
