Blanket chest made with red oak plywood for the structure, popular for the trim and lined with cedar. I also added wheels. I gave it to my wife as a Christmas gift and she loved it.

What color is that finish. Its a little hard to tell from the pics. What process did you use to finish it?

Looks great!

I used mahogany polyurethane. Sanded with 600 grit between coats. Seven coats for the top, five and the sides.

Have your say...
