Tooch, my problem is that everything looks like a box to me. So, I am a poor one to give advice on the problem. I would make a box, look at it for a while, and if I liked the look, I would make more boxes. If I didn t think it suited me, then I d sell the wood. It is enough for a small piece of furniture, but you would have a difficult time finding more chestnut to make a set of something. I plane all the boards for boxes down to 5/8 because it fits my hinges and does not look too bulky as a side.

Al there is nothing wrong with thinking inside of the box. I was thinking of using it for a head board to accent the new furniture in our new bedroom. So far I only have two bedside tables, and they are both in oak.

The grain pattern with this is similar and I think the color would match, albeit slightly darker due to the age. I just don’t know if it would look awesome or just look out of place…
