Well, I've been trolling for a little while now and for my first post, I'll request some help. Hopefully in the future I can contribute something to the site.
I recently purchased an old craftsman table saw and jointer. Got some hand tools and a small bandsaw.
I have learned quite a bit from just reading the forums and appreciate this site immensley. However, my first project is to finish a cedar chest that I made back in high school, 30 years ago It's been sitting in my Mom and Dad's basement all these years. My question's for you is, what finish should I put on it? Can I even put a finish on it after all these years? I'll be picking it up tomorrow and I'll post a pic of it then. Thanks for the help.
