Utility Chestnut boxes

American Wormy Chestnut Boxes

American Wormy Chestnut once was use for furniture, fence post, and barn building but the tree all die off from a virus and only available as recycled lumber now. I had a client who had the Chestnut on there wall like knotty pine paneling they were remodeling and had to take it all down. They commission me to build two blanket chest, and four jewelry boxes out of it and gave me the rest. So ever now and then I build something out of a piece of history.
