Built this with the help of Thomas J MacDonald’s videos aka “T-Chisel” of Major League Woodworking. If you have not checked out his sight it is well worth the trip over. I started watching his podcasts and and go hooked on them. My wife wanted a blanket chest for Christmas and he had a great design and instruction.
The project has been a bit of a departure from the kayak building and requires a complete different set of skills and tools. It was fun and has expanded my range as a woodworker. Makes me want to build another one to correct my errors and perfect my techniques.
Carving was done with an 1/8” chisel, an Exacto knife and a Bosh Colt router. I really need some carving tools I found I really got into the carving and with the right tools I think it would really be something I would like to get into.
Thanks for checking it out.
