First real “furniture” type of project. Learned a lot and picked up some new techniques, specifically, mortising for butt hinges. Took some practice on a bit of scrap, but in the end it was a success on the finished piece. Made it as a gift for my girlfriend who had been eyeing a new blanket that she was waiting to go on sale. Seemed like a good reason to build a blanket chest – haha! All in all, definitely a fun project and in the end it turned out well. Oh, one last thing. I also was able to use my new/old (picked up a Fuji Super 3 on CL a couple weeks back) which laid down a great finish. I used a Sherwin Williams oil based.
