The Newton Chest

Newton Chest front bw

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).

    • Thanks, Don. There were some very challenging aspects to this chest, especially the tree inlay. I learned a lot making it.
