Cedar Chest Complete

I finished the cedar chest quit a while ago, however, I did not post the completed project because Amy is going to get surprised Christmas morning!

I decided on a satin urethane finish.  I just could not bring myself to put a glossy coat of shellac on the walnut veneer.  It just did not seem like the right thing to do.

If you click on the picture, it will expand to full size and you can see in more detail the “before” and “after.”

Merry Christmas!

    Thank you big brother! It’s beautiful and it was such a surprise to get it home today. Thank you for making it so that I will be able to pass it down someday. This means the world to me!!!
