Wooden Chest

I have a wooden chest. Not a wooden heart.

The bread oven

Inside the bread oven. Very old.

I found my chest deep in the cellars of the house as what I had in France. The house had previously been the town bread shop. The box had a specific purpose. They chucked the dough into it and let it rise. There is a name for this kind of chest in French but I have forgotten it.

Anyway, with great difficulty I extracted it from the cave

La cave. The tiled bit at the end used to be a reservoir for wine.

and spent weeks removing the many coats of paint as what had been applied thereupon.

I have neglected my chest. Today I applied teak oil and wax to make her happy.

It is oak and hundreds of years old

I like cleaning things.
