This is a cedar blanket chest with walnut base and walnut around the lid. The walnut gives it more durability to protect against vacuum cleaners etc. The sides are dovetailed and the base and lid pieces have mitred joints with keyways. There are no metal fasteners except for the hinge and handle hardware. I made square dowelling and left the dowels about 1/8” proud. Tung oil finish except for the bottom liner, which is aromatic cedar.
