Instead of cutting out the sap, or lighter part of the walnut, this walnut storage chest is very striking with its array of both light sapwood and dark heartwood, something the customer valued and requested.
The chest was constructed by using dovetail joinery at the corners of the chest, which … would ensure stability and longevity. The lid is connected with a long, continuous brass hinge. Additionally, brass handles complement the brass hinge and contrasts with the dark walnut.
The chest was given two (2) hand rubbed coats of a 50/50 mix of Danish wood oil and a satin finish polyurethane. The areas of the walnut grain that swirled were hand rubbed just a little more so as to bring out the design and luster of the wood. After drying, the chest was hand rubbed with a liquid wax.

Steve has done an amazing job with our custom built in cabinets. He came out for an initial visit where we discussed ideas and he measured the area. We got an initial estimate and he gave us time to think about it while he put some drawings together. I couldn't believe how talented he was with his sketches. I was excited already because I could picture exactly what it would look like just based on his drawing. His prices are so reasonable and his work is second to none. Steve has a ton of experience with woodworking, works quickly, has great communication throughout the whole process and creates an amazing piece of work! You will not be disappointed! I plan to have him build many more things for our new house. -Kristi-
