Linenfold Chest

This is a small chest I made for a friend. It’s based from a book on Medieval furniture and called a Linenfold due to the decoration on the front, which looks like folded linen. With the exception of using glue, the entire box is made in period style using grooves, and mortise and tenon. I had to make 26 for this box. The box is made of cypress, rather than oak as specified in the manual. My friend uses this to cart her pottery and I wanted it to be as light as possible, but still strong.

The inlay in the top is bloodwood, yellowheart, and walnut. I used double bevel marquetry techniques to create the interlocking shield shape. The shield is my friend’s “arms” as they are registered in the medieval society we both belong to. As soon as her husband gets his approved, I’ll add his to the other side.

The chest doubles as a stool as well.

I’d love to hear about more SCA (I assumed) projects.

Have your say...
