A cedar blanket chest I put together.

Frame and panel style with mortise and tenon joints and raised panels all the way around.

Biscuits, dowels or just glue?

Thanks Matt!

You could sit on it or standup and jump on it! Plenty sturdy! It has been tested and seems grandkid proof, so far.

I thought the legs would make it look a bit different from the others I have seen. Seemed like a good idea at the time. :-)

I like it ! Good idea with the longer legs. It makes it easier on the back when reaching in side.
