This chest is made from 3/4 tongue and groves wanes coating and framed in White Ash. It is lined with Western Red Cedar after it has been put together. Notice the feet. This idea originated from making a puzzle. They are not hard to make so if you are interested check the posting on puzzle. How many species of wood can you identify.

very colorful with all the different woods. I’d guess some Cherry, Curly Maple, Walnut, Box Elder, Spalted Maple, White Ash of coarse, Hickory?............ I’m a rookie so, that’s my guesses.
Was this just scraps that you’ve saved? pretty kool project

Fascinating! I keep coming back to look, finally decided that it’s a great wood sampler or sort of a ‘patchwork quilt’ box.
I envy your variety and availability of woods!
thanks for showing it to us.

Very cool. Is it all solid wood? I thought the booked matched piece in the front center might be veneer. Great use of the small pieces we all have.
