    I guess it's a tool chest. I've seen these for years, but this one is nicer than most and in wonderful condition. Lots of sailing scenes on it. It smells great too.

      A cedar tool chest. Well that has to be a first. Cedar is a soft wood that doesn't take much of a beating. This could be used as a tool box but I hate thoughts of the tool I need always being at the bottom. It doesn't show wear that suggests it having been a tool box. It looks small enough to be a linen box. Cedar would be ideal for that. I have a full size cedar chest from the 1930's I keep saying I plan to refinish but at this age I guess it won't happen.

      well that makes more sense! it's a little over 2 ft long.

      You don't give the dimensions. The end panel you've photographed as a gated scene - what do you make of that?

      Sea shells and seaweed I think. I don't believe it's a tool box though. Not lined in cedar. Agree with fhrjr2 on that one.

      oops! dimensions are 25 inches across, 16 inches tall. It's made of camphor wood, i've discovered.
