    Scratch Built Chest

    Not sure if this is the right place to post but here goes. My son is able to get his hands on a bunch of clear Chestnut that is salvaged from interior doors and moldings. He has plans for most of it but I get the leftovers and cutoffs. I'd love to build 2 chests from scratch out of Chestnut. I have a few spare parts from a Gerstner chest to get some ideas from. Sound like a good idea or not?

    Thanks

    To build a chest is one thing. To do it well is another. I would go for it! Besides...a chest built by a father or grandfather should be more valuable than any Gerstner.

    Thanks. It will be a couple of years before everything falls into place. Now, I need to figure out our needs, number of drawers and overall size.
