Hey everybody. First off, thanks for all the positive feedback and advice I’ve gotten from so many on here. It’s been a great resource over and over and a very supportive environment.
Here’s a little blanket chest I made as a gift for my Brother (I can finally post it online since he received it in the mail today). He bought me a set of Blue Spruce Toolworks dovetail chisels, so I wanted to make something special for him, using those.
Solid Cherry of course, handcut joinery and all material hand planed to thickness. A couple of things I wish I had planned better – no lock because the material is too thin (about 3/8”) for a mortise and also too thin for those nice side rail stopped hinges, so I used a chain.
This was my first time with Watco Danish Oil. It has two coats of that with a paste wax topcoat.
Thanks for looking and happy holidays!
