I am pleased to share some images of this memorial-hope chest built for a kind family up North. They drove a long road to pick it up this weekend and meet my family and myself. and found the road back with a little less leg room I am afraid. I have sought that my work might be graced to carry God’s blessing for those who are receiving it. I certainly hope this one does. It is a dovetailed chest with drawers featuring an inlaid tree design and an unorthodox lid. The woods were all harvested and milled here in Kansas: black walnut and green ash, with quarter sawn white oak, eastern red cedar, ebonized black walnut, bald cypress and poplar (not from KS).

Don’t recall seeing this before. Spectacular!
Thanks, Don. There were some very challenging aspects to this chest, especially the tree inlay. I learned a lot making it.
This is amazing.
Wow! Thank you very much, William.
