Blanket chest made from pine bought at a local home store. They were selling as “value wood” and pricing it as such. I was able to get quite a bit of usable stock out of what I had purchased and ended up with what you see. The overall shape is very, very loosely based on a design from a recent issue of FWW. Finished with amber shellac and with a coat of paste wax. A gift for my sister-in-law.

Nice, reminds me of the stuff my dad used to make. He loved big box retailers pine.

It’s amazing what you can do with some “value wood”. Nice blanket chest.

Everything my dad used to make was out “value wood” also. I was always amazed at how well his projects turned out. Great looking chest, well done.
