I have ten grandchildren and I have taken on the challenge to make a blanket chest for each of them. These are the first two.
First, I did the walnut one, I found Glen Huey’s plans in the August 2009 edition of Popular Woodworking. He had this full size one and a 3/4 version I built for the small space in my mother’s apartment. Very popular with the ladies was the till box with a secret compartment.
In the December 1996 edition of American Woodworker, R. S. Wilkerson has plans for a Connecticut Blanket Chest I decided to do in cherry. Again, the till and secret compartment were well received as was the Chippendale hardware and the beautiful skirt.
-- I leave behind little bits of beauty to compensate for for my impact on this world.
