This is my second cedar chest of the year.
This one is smaller (33x23x15) than the first that I completed in August, and the joinery is different. I used three-inch wide planks of cedar and put them together so that they made finger joints at each corner.
But like the first cedar chest, the wood comes from a log that we sawed with our sawmill.
I tried something a little different with the top and the bottom. I glued together some random pieces, most of which had 45-degree angles. I like the way that turned out.
Cedar is great wood to work with and, of course, its aroma is wonderful.
