Billy Strong's Retirement Chest

We're pleased to select Billy Strong of Ingleside, TX for our Wood Finishing Showcase. Billy's project is a retirement chest.

Dear Minwax,

Here is a retirement chest I built for a very good friend of mine who is retiring from the Navy after 23 years of service. It was an honor to build this chest for him. The chest is constructed of Ash, Texas Pecan, and Mappa Burl veneer. The joints are all mortise and integral tenon. The finish is your Minwax Dark Walnut stain, Helmsman Spar varnish, and Minwax furniture polish. Thank you for delivering such a great product as its use and reliablility are superb.
