How the Dragon Chest came to Life (3)

Following images do not only show the detailed carving on the cover with the dragon bas-relief but also the current state of the chest after 10 years of use! The layers of dust sometimes gave it a charming appearance of age…

You see – there has been some heavy testing about the quality and how the wood behaves after that time in a heated apartment in winter and quite humid summers.

The chest was filled with stuff, moved around etc. and besides some minor scratches at the bottom from the vacuum cleaner which can easily be repaired – nothing happened to the wood itself. It is as straight and without cracks as before.

And finally the last image shows the back of the chest where I have added some more ornaments. Backs are usually neglected – not mine! 😛
