I came across some pix of a blanket chest I made for a charity auction some years ago and thought I’d share….
Made with hand cut dovetails, from pine, finished with milk paint, and has a secret compartment. I remember making the floor of the blanket storage area even with the top of the drawer openings to maximize the storage space and to keep the drawers from tipping down when opened.
It’s not made from plans, just from a photo of one I liked….
I don’t know if the winning bidder has found the secret compartment yet or if they know one exists….. IIRC, I put my contact info, some construction photos, and a note about who the charity auction was for inside it. Might be something that surprises me in twenty years, who knows ?!
Thanks for looking!
