This is a guild build of the Wood Whisperer’s G&G Blanket Chest Project. I made it as a wedding present for my little sister and her new husband. The plans call for Mahogany but the quality of the stock at my local supplier was so abysmal that I decided to go with Sapele instead. I couldn’t be happier with it. It has no stain, just finished with Zinsser SealCoat and Deft Spray Lacquer. Really easy application and great result. My favorite part of the project was the case construction. The ebony plugs were tedious and took a while but well worth it. Once the finish was applied they really pop out. Thanks for looking!
