Storage Chest

Photo Jul 16, 5 21 51 PM.jpg

We were in Henry County, Ky. back in the Summer for a woodland owners course and visited the (Wendell) Berry Center Bookstore while there.  We took a quick tour of the original restored log cabin and upstairs found this old storage chest.  It does not have the best joinery, mostly rabbeted or butt joints with nails, but it has a ton of character.  What we found most intriguing is the small drawer between the large, lower drawer and the upper, main storage compartment.  We have yet to discover the history of this chest but I plan return, take measurements, and recreate it in our shop.  Those posts to follow.
