Timbers used are French Oak and Baltic birch plywood. The hinges are Rockler Torsion Hinges.
The finish is Seal R Cell and Arm R Seal.
|A pile of stock|
|My router template jig came in useful for holding|
the stock and a pre-existing template I already
had to make the curves. Tip - Never throw away your templates

|Finishing the edges with flexible sanders|
|And of course a spoke shave|
|The plywood bottom is simply screwed in place. I also|
added some mid support blocks glued in place.
|This is my brand. Heated with a domestic blow lamp.|
|Lots of sanding followed by sealing with General Finishes Sealer Cell.|
|The top coat is several coats of General Finishes semi gloss Arm R Seal.|
I can't get this anymore in the UK due to import restrictions probably driven by VOC regulations.
|The chest is now ready to have its hinges fitted.|
