I had a customer ask me to make a blanket chest that resembled a treasure chest. He is thrilled with the finished project. It’s made of pine and is 48 inches long by 25-1/2 inches wide by 30 inches high. Everything is hand-dovetailed. I built a small “glove box” inside on the right. The strap hinges and all the handles were custom made by my blacksmith friend at Leaning Barn Iron Works in Conestoga, Pennsylvania. Zar Classic Wood Finish gives the chest a nice, light, amber look. This project was really fun to make, and I completed it just in time for Christmas.
