Here is my version of a blanket chest. It is made out of solid width (18 inch) Black walnut boards air dried for 3 years and plane downd to 1 inch. I cut these on our antique saw mill @ 5/4, 20 inch boaards and then planned them on our tractor driven 20 inch plane down to 1 inch. In the background is a black walnut bed which I made two years ago. I love working with walnut as you can see. Sorry about the pictures.

Great blanket chest, nice craftsmanship. This is on my to do list for my two kids. I also love working with walnut. It’s very easy to work with and finishes beautifully.

Very nice looking. Would also be nice to see more information on your saw mill and planer maybe in a blog post or something.
