« Part 5: Measure Twice, Hand Plane Once! Part 6 of New Yankee Blanket Chest series Part 7: Got Leg? »

My resolution this new year was to finally finish this project so here we go…

After getting my new planer I finally finished planing down the final two panels and glued up the 4th side. I figured this was a good time to sand the inside so I used a random orbit sander to sand the inside to 150 grit. Then it was time to glue the 4 sides together! The diagonal clamp is to pull everything into square.

Next step will be to cut the shape of the feet and start adding the bottom.

Mine took 2 years. I think you are still on pace to beat me by a mile. It is looking very good!

Have your say...
