I got the thing form a local old guy who has perhaps 9 local tools chests - we
live on the Eastern Shore of MD.  I think it must be somewhat local.  So much
oil on the whole thing, hard to tell - it appears to be a softwood.  I don’t
think it is Yellow Pine, perhaps cedar.  The hinges also appear to be regular
enough in appearance I would have to guess they are manufatured.  There is,
again, so much crud it is hard to see the screw slots and I don’t want to clean
anything up.  I don’t have a good smeller so it just smells oily to me -
petroleum based?  I have not tried it on an edge - I should do that.
