I’m new to Lumberjocks. I’ve been viewing other projects for awhile, and now I have something finished to contribute as well.
This blanket chest is my first attempt at crafting a finished piece that is larger than a step-stool or shelf. The ogee feet were cut on a table saw – a technique that I learned during the process from my friend (craftsman extraordinaire) Bob A. The project took longer than it should have because the original lid warped to such a degree that it could not be salvaged. I was not able to determine what caused it to warp, but I think that the subsequent lid came out fine as well. Currently, I have lined the bottom with cedar, and I’m still debating whether or not I should do the walls.
The dimensions of the chest (Depth : 18”, Height : 19”, Length : 36”)
