I had a little bit of walnut hardwood and maple plywood left over from the wine cabniet build so I made a blanket chest. Nothing special but it looks good sitting under one of the windows in the living room.

A very neat job.

P.S. Did you know the gas strut in installed upside down?
It should be the other way around so as the piston moves in and out oil within the cylinder lubricates the piston shaft.

To Rob – that isn’t a gas strut. It’s Stanley’s center mount lid stay #80047. It’s a spring. But thanks for looking it over for me!

I strongly have to disagree with you.It is my own strong opinion that this is really quite a special desk. The design ,and contrasts in the wood, make for a very nicely finished chest.I do like it very much. Alistair
