I made this Blanket chest out of walnut as a wedding gift for a close family friend. This was also my first attempt at dovetails.

Great Blanket Chest!!!! I am currently making one and I have a question about the top. I am guessing the top is ok without a breadboard edge? Do you find that over time the lids without breadboard edges cup or bow a bit? And…...is that piano hinge mortised or flush mounted?

Thanks to everyone for the compliments.
JohnThis chest does have breadboard ends on the top, and seems to be holding up well. I have made other chests without breadboard ends, and just put stays on the underside.And….. I did mortise the piano hinge.

Absolutely gorgeous! Can you share your finishing techniques for the walnut? I have a walnut project in my near future.

TyI usually sand to 320 followed by a couple coats of danish oil, giving each coat at least 2 days to dry. I follow that with about 5 to 6 coats of an oil based wipe-on poly.
