Finishing Addison's Hope Chest

Over Christmas break, Dad and a carpenter friend from the Chapel spent two days making an Oak Chest for Addy's toys downstairs. When Addy gets married, it will become her's to pass on to her children. The corners of the chest are made from Oak trees recently felled from in front of the US Capitol that have stood there for a hundred years. Dad is staining it this week in the garage and it will go in the living room for now with a cushion on top for extra seating when we have small group meetings.

That chest looks awesome. How did you get the wood? It must have been a sapling when Lincoln was president. Pretty cool.
