This is a blanket chest I made out of pieces of poplar and some Oak leftover from other stuff. Not wild about the colors of it, but it’s poplar. I made a jig for the box joints to use at the router table, works pretty well. It will be in the guest bedroom when I get that done!

It sure looks heavy! What finish did you use?

Looks like a great build.

My camera bit the dust, but when I get a new one I will post a picture or two of my box jig.
