A basic Oak Blanket chest with walnut accents. The carcass is just veneered ply, the trim is all solid wood as well as the lid. The flourish was carved on the CNC from solid walnut. The interior molding is made from the cut off of the miter jointed legs. Brass Hinges, basic lid supports, Poly finish in high gloss.. The chest measures roughly
42” x 24” x 30” tall.

Looks great, I like the contrast of the walnut with the oak.

It came out really great. Like the clean lines, pretty wood choices and great finish. The carving is a great accent.
