Coffee table gun chest all on one

This is the most involved project I have attempted up till now. All out of repurposed pallet wood, stained with tend mahogany with poly finish. Half lap joints, seemed to be the best fit for this particular project, although the next project after surgery for cataracts I will try tendons. Trying to improve my skills as I go. The chest has a lock with a skeleton key, my daughter’s request. Christmas present for her husband. Took me a while to finish but, finally it’s done.

Tools: table saw planer jointer router table and portable router

Very nice work James

Great job James. The stain makes it look a lot like Cedar (that’s good in my opinion).

Thanks Mike40, it’s actually Red Mahogany slightly lightened with three coats of high gloss poly.
