a simple curve top blanket chest made from cherry and honduran mahogany. the curve top and box joints were fun to watch take shape. soft close arm keeps the stout lid from slamming. my favorite process was learning how to steam bend wood.

I love chests. There’s just something intriguing about them that makes you want to lift the lid to see what lies within. You did a great job, very impressive.
