This was my first blanket chest (before the GnG). I built this for some friends son to keep all of his scouting memories in. The cabinet is walnut, with variable spaced dovetails. I used this project as an excuse to buy the PC Omni-Jig. It worked like a charm. I debated long and hard between the Omni and the Leigh jig. I ended up going with the Omni because of it’s positive stops and repeatability. Both are solid tools and could do the job.
The lid is Walnut Burl veneer trimmed in curly maple. I actually think this piece looks better in person than in the pictures.
