I ordered a chest made back in September, 24x14x14. It was supposed to take 2-4 weeks and finally arrived on December 1st. That's not the issue. I actually love it except for one little thing.... The chest The top The inside lid I ask the guy, why is there an N after the word Always? He says it's in the grain. He said he's seen some odd things, and it does look weird, but it's in the wood. Hence, the question. What do you think that is? My brother says maybe it's some kind of lumber grade stamp. Both he and DH think they see some other odd pattern amid the lettering. There are no strange patterns on the sides or back. I'm tempted to sand the face of it and try restaining it, but I don't really want to screw it up worse. It's paid for and can't be returned. He did everything exactly as I asked, but DAMN...there's an N there. It bugs me because now it's the first thing I notice. It's eventually going into the ground with the ashes of 33 cats and a couple dogs, but until the time comes I will still have to look at it. What do you see? Got any opinions on what caused it or the best way to fix it?
