My Grandpa made this. He used to make a lot of beautiful things for people. Cedar chests, jewelry boxes, gun cabinets, lots of neat things. After my grandparents passed away I inherited this. It's a really nice piece, I just didn't think I had anywhere to put it. And it needed a little tlc. So it was put in the storage area in the basement and that's where it's been for years. I wanted to make this functional and spruce it up a bit.
