A blanket chest for my niece. Made from a single black cherry tree from my sister’s yard. I talked my brother-in-law into giving me the log instead of cutting it up for firewood. My initial thought was to make it from glued up panels, but I wasn’t pleased with the heart vs sap wood matching. Inspired by HorizontalMike’s blanket chest(among others) here on Lumberjocks I arrived at this panel plan. The bottom is red cedar. Finished with a name brand tung oil.
