I built this blanket chest from an 1984 issue of Woodsmith. The box was built over the past month using oak for the main casing and cedar for the lining in the trunk and the drawers. This was my first attempt at using the Leigh jig for dovetails. The drawer pulls are from an antique dresser that was in the family for years. I have yet to add a lock mechanism and the lid support. My wife just couldn’t wait to get it out of the shop and into the bedroom so she could admire it.
