Heres a blanket chest I just finished fore a lady here in town. It is a queen size that will serve as a foot board also. She said just make it plane and simple in design so that it wont be hard to dust. Maybe those little corners in those panels wont be too hard.
She has had the walnut lumber in a barn for about fifteen years. The chest is 64” at the back and 60” in the front around a 7 degree taper the sides are 18” wide and it is 36” tall. and has two drawers in the bottom. The walnut was planed down to 7/8 ” thick and it is very Heavy. I cut the panels on the table saw which was a first for me to do that. way too much sanding for that process if you have very many panels. It has around ten coats of lacquer, I lost count. Had some trouble with the moisture and humidity with my lacquer but one quick forum question took care of that. Thanks again Jocks.
Hope yall enjoy
