Home projects: Antique Cedar Chest


Meet my great grandmother’s cedar chest. This has been with me since before I was married, but it mostly sat in the closet until we moved here.


Since then, this cedar chest has sat in our garage. We parked it there almost four years ago when we moved in. We fully intended to move it later, but never did. Unfortunately, the chest has sustained some damage out here in the garage.


At this point, I have noticed the veneer is chipping off in several places.


So I took a hair dryer and tried to loosen the glue so the veneer could  be peeled off.


This is a super sllllloooooowwwww process. My plans are to remove all the veneer, sand the wood underneath it, and stain and varnish it.


I can’t wait to show you what I do to it. Have a great Thursday!!
