I built a couple of hope chests for some friends of mine for their daughters for Christmas. They wanted simple, but I was bit by the inspiration bug of Greene and Greene…well actually Darrell Peart. So they provided the cedar and I did the building. One piece is styled after Mr. Peart’s blanket chest and the other is a stile and rail designed to resemble a Japanese tsuba(sp?) that I saw in Mr. Peart’s book. I used poplar buttons instead of square ebony plugs and poplar splines instead of ebony splines. And since I’m not that good at finishing I used a wipe on poly.
