This blanket chest was a project that my Brother-in-Law asked me to build. We are both huge fans of the look of cypress furniture and his wife wanted a blanket chest to replace an old press wood chest that she has had for several years.
The design was inspired by photos that my Bro-in-Law and his wife found while searching the internet. I drew the project up in SketchUp in an effort to provide them with an idea of what the completed project would look like. It was a good thing too because my sister-in-law asked me to change the dimensions of the case to accommodate the specific storage needs that she had for the chest (I love SketchUp).
The project is a simple raised panel design. The lid has a lip for a cushion as the chest will also double as a window seat.
