Poplar frame and plywood panels. Cedar closet liner for the inside. First project sprayed with my earlex and that was a joy.

A very nice build. I like the contrasting colors on the inside of the chest.

I inherited a blanket chest from my grandmother, her father built it for her wedding present in 1919. I believe he used black walnut and the entire chest is fastened with nails. It was one of the few things that survived when their house burned in 1953. I am in the process of dimensioning the chest and creating a set of drawings so I can reproduce it, although I doubt I will use black walnut.

Yes, as a structural engineer, strength is seldom lacking in my projects. Wife thinks I overbuild.
