I just finished this cherry blanket chest / dressing bench for delivery tomorrow.
The dimensions are: 60” long by 24” x 24” I used birch plywood for the bottow and a light cherry oil finish just to kind of even out the color inconsistancies. I finished it with semi-gloss poly.

Now, if I can just get to make the rest of the bedroom furniture to match…...:)

Movingui Project to commence tomorrow!!

Very nice work. That would make a nice looking coffin, though. ;)

Very nice work.

I appreciate that you didn’t use raised panels on the top .
