A pair of blanket chest

983 days ago by Don W | 22 comments »

My daughter has 2 friends who are expecting. One of them she has been friends with forever. It started when my daughter asked me if I would make her friend a porch swing for her. I agreed as long as she helped. I got a chance to spend some time doing woodworking with my daughter, but she wasn’t much help. She didn’t take much interest, but it was worth a try. I’ve been making stuff for her friends ever since. When my daughter recently asked her friend what she wanted for her...

We were cutting some of the planks today and this is a cut-off piece that I plan to use to make a few pen blanks. On one side of the board it seems tha...
