I have to give Jay a lot of credit even if he doesn’t know it. I have a very tiny shop with plenty of tools but I don’t have the eye for seeing a project in my head then draw it and so on. Jays site made it easy for me to understand what to do and how I could make my own chest..
As I went along I would make a mistake and then try and hide it by adding something new to not make it obvious. For instance, the black screws you see around the chest well like a jerk I used a screw to close up a mitered corner then realizing I couldn’t leave it like that so I pre drilled holes cut off half the screw and put them where you can see them as if I planned it that way. See the lid is out of proportion????
I won’t go on, to many mistakes and not all covered, hehehe.
On to my next project using pallet wood for a coffee table and use a clear finish..
Thanks again jay.
Thanks Michael! I’m glad you were able to build this chest. As people say you are often times the hardest critic to your own work. I think it turned out great! I’m glad I could be of some help and thanks for choosing my design. Here are some pics of his chest. Be sure to let Michael know what you think of his chest in the comments below!
