Simple Blanket Chest, with a sliding tray, made from Maple. Birdseye, Curly, and Spalted Maple. Top has a few Oak boards, as I was using up the lumber on hand….there is a hint of lighter sap wood on the back edge. Bread board ends are with a sliding dovetail joint. Tray features hand cut dovetails. Raised panels were made with a handplane.

Lid “Keeper/brace” is also Maple. It will fold down after it is released from the “D” shaped keeper….and also keeps the chain inside the chest. Hinges were “adapted” to fit. Three coats of Amber Shellac for a finish. Not too bad of a project?

Very nice, Bandit. I enjoyed the blog on this chest. Is this a keeper or a gift?
