Default Jerry's Cedar Chest, Close To Being Finished

This is the state of the cedar chest as of this morning. The top boxes are yet to be built, then it will be time to start sanding and finally adding the finish which will be Tung Oil. The chest is made of Quarter Sawed White Oak, the frame is jointed together with dowels.

Nice work--especially the choice of boards for the top!! Where did you get your torsion hinges, and are you pleased with that choice up to now?

I hope you will be putting some type of lid stay on...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Earl,
I got the torsion hinges from Rockler, they are 60 Ft. Lbs hinges and they work just as I had hoped.

Stick,

Help me out here, why would I want to add stays to the lid. The torsion hinges hold the lid in any postion I leave it once it is up to about 30 degrees. But you know more ab out such things than I do as I am just beginner and I am open to advise. I admit that like Harry says, while I may be open to suggestsion, I do filter them most of the time to see if want to take what suggestions are given.

Rick,
I had thought of this project for several years and built it in my head countless times, and finally decided to give it a go. I used every tool that I own on the project, right down to the self centering drill to start the holes in the hinges.

That is a fine looking chest Jerry.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
