A Walnut and Curry Maple blanket chest and “Cheval”/Stand Mirror I made for my wife to go with the Mission Style bed I made a few years back. I really enjoy mortise and tenon style construction.
The blanket chest has a 20×40 inch lid attached with a piano hinge. the overall dimensions are 20 inches tall and 13 inches deep inside. The inside base is free floating to allow for seasonal movement.
The mirror I built around a .25 inch thick mirror glass (13.5×55.5 inches) I bought for $10 dollars at a yard sale. The full mirror hight is 70 inches tall with 1.5 inch square legs. The only metal in the entire mirror is the brass mirror pivot screws from Rockler.
Thanks for looking.
