My second woodworking project and my first attempt at mortise and tenon joints. They make it look so easy on TV. The chest has 20 mortise and tenon joints. To complete these I cut 22 mortises and 40 tenons. Persistence paid off and I am pleased with the results.

Pretty. Reminds me of a nice blanket chest that Norm Abrams did on a show. Same design?

Yes, my first two woodworking projects came from Norms plans. The only change I made to his blanket chest plans was the type if hinge used. Instead of a piano hinge I used torsion hinges from Rockler as this chest will be used as a toy chest.
