Well fellow Jocks and Jockettes, I am slowly approaching the completion of my Granddaughter’s blanket chest.

This weekend I managed to cut the lid to size, put a 3/4” round over on the top edges, apply two coats of shellac and numerous coats of General Finishes “Java” and “Georgian Cheery” Gel Coat.

I still need to do some touch up work, rub it out and apply 2 or 3 coats of GF poly seal coat. However, before that happens I have to install the hardware and the cedar lined bottom.

Here is how it looks today:

Hope you had a great Easter Holiday.

Bruce, this looks good. This is a nice rendition of the project that Tommy posted. Your version has a nice design to it and I like the look that the raised panels give to the piece.

Nice job.
