Solid Eastern red Cedar
Aprox 31 L x 21 H x 18 D
Based on a Shaker Union Village blanket chest.
My wife asked me to make a cedar chest for her and two days later a colleague ask if I would build one for his wife. With a coincidence like that I figured I had to build them so… two blanket chests. Also my first accepted commission. I wrote a short blog about it.
The wood was grown and milled locally and smells fantastic. It was the first time working with Cedar and it was a little brittle, especially making the finger joints.
All in all not a bad project.
