Nice chest. How are you going to finish it?

Here is the finished blanket chest - 5 years later.
I started it, then set it to the side for all those years.
I finally decided to complete it by gluing up boards for the top and deciding what type of cutout I wanted to make for the bottom.
I went with something simple.
As for the finish, I used three coats of Bush's Oil for the first time and I absolutely love it.
Make sure you use it in a well-ventilated area, preferrably outside.
The wood shimmers like a hologram.
Definitely my best project to date.
Thanks for looking.

Very nice! I just started milling my own wood from my yard and found I have a bunch of Ambrosia Maple. I'm not into turning and was wondering what to build with it...I think I just decided!!!
