Built this chest for our middle daughter. Walnut and cherry with aromatic cedar lining. Added corner caps to the lid. Legs are tapered. Measures 43×23 inches.
I worked from plans but like most, altered a bit along the way. In particular, I changed the lid, adding the cherry perimeter which I think makes it really pop. The bottom is 3/4 cherry ply covered in felt fabric. The finger lift was all sanding. #woodworking #blanketchest #maker #rowdypenguinproductions

Very nice looking blanket chest. The wood combinations look good.

David, you really did a fine job on this chest.
