Lars has been working on a hope chest, (blanket box), or Cedar Chest - made from Pine ;D for our daughter for Christmas...
He put it off until December 20th - which didn't leave him a lot of time to figure it all out because he's never made one before and he didn't want to "buy" a pattern or try to find one on-line. He said, "I'll wing it." But with only a couple of days to buy the wood, figure out what he was making and make it...I was a little worried.
Here's how the project went.
First he just built a box (which I thought looked a bit like a coffin). And then he had to make the top.
He glued together a couple long pieces of word for the top and used little pieces of wood for support. And he glued some more . . .
And some more
Here he's using a silicon basting brush (yep something from the kitchen) he says the glue won't stick to silicon . . .
