Project Information

I recently completed this Coast Guard Sea Chest for a retiring Warrant Officer. This is a mid sized chest measuring approximately 30"x 18" x 20". It is made from red oak and stained Early American I finished it off with 5 coats of semi gloss lacquer. I used Rockler 60 inch lb Torsion hinges for the lid. These work great to hold open the lid to display the shadowbox inside or to slow close to prevent it from slamming shut. The military artwork was carved with my ShopBot CNC machine.
