I made two as a trade for some sapphire earrings for my wife. She almost opted to keep the chests instead, but in the end (as usual) the jewelry won out.

how big are they? Beautiful and I love the carving in the front. Missed it in the first picture.
Your wife made a good choice—you can always make her her own blanket chest! :D

Beaut… need to find some more adjectives.
Hard to tell the scale of these with the rest of the photo blurred out. I suppose these are long gone, so no more photos of these?

Wow – terrific! Your work is very special. I’m going to keep an eye on your projects – they are very inspiring.
Also like the photographic technique – how did you do that? The piece looks like it is floating.

I just saw this on “roll the dice” option. Very nice design and contrasting woods. Nice fit on the joinery.

thank goodness for the “roll the dice” feature on this site !!! These are truly beautiful chests and the more I look at them the more wonderful details I see : ) At first I thought that they were jewelry boxes but then I saw the size listed in the other comment response so I don’t need to ask you where you found those tiny handles anymore ! hahahahahaaa Nice , really nice job …If I had a choice , I would prefer the second picture because of the awesome look of your joinery and the colors are gorgeous together : ) have a great day !!

Netized, good looking piece. I like the contrasting woods that really show off your craftsmanship. Your wife made the right choice. If you are like me, you can’t make earrings, but I sure can get back out there in the shop and make another blanket chest! No problem! Sawdust!!!
Good work. Yep, I love roll the dice too. I wouldn’t have scrolled through thousands of project to get to this one.
