my daughter signed her first lease for an apartment yesterday, everyone is nervous.
Shes now officially out on her own. Not living here or her brothers house.
she doesn't have anything except a bedroom set, an old cabinet I made her, and her lingerie cabinet.
Her new apartment has little space.
Not sure how long she might live there and so on, so for a coffee table, I decided to make her a small blanket chest, I will line the inside with cedar, but she will use it as a coffee table for now, eventually maybe move it into her bedroom.(her bedroom is large, her living space is tiny.)
Cherry frame, spalted maple panels, whatever spalted maple I have left, wasn't the best in the lot I had purchased years ago, doesn't all look like the little piece I cut off one end.
All lumber is cut to rough size, letting it sit overnight, did not cut the lid piece yet, that's up the road a bit, not sure if she wants breadboard ends, or a routed shaped edge, Ill let her look and decide.
It will have waterlox as initial coat to seal, not sure if Im going to put something over the waterlox.
