This Pennsylvania blanket chest including the base, measures about 50” wide, 29” high, and 22 1/2” deep. The main box is made from 13/16” black walnut. The lid is 3/4” black walnut. I used through dovetails on the corners and half blind dovetails on the drawers. Below the drawers and inside the base, I utilized a web type dust frame made from poplar. I also installed a trim detail around the outside edges of the underside of the lid to cover the seam when the lid is closed.
I sealed and stained the chest with Waco Danish Oil, and several coats of satin Minwax poly.
