I made this chest for my daughters 3rd birthday to house her stuffed animals. Panel construction, I made my own silicone spacers to prevent the panels from rattling. Silicone caulk laid out on wax paper, then cut to length after it dried.

Nice blanket chest. I too have done the silicon chalking on wax paper trick. I know Space Balls are expensive, but I have found them to be more predictable/dependable. I have had times the silicon spacer would squeeze/ooze out of the panel-frame intersection, and I had to cut it with a knife. The Space Balls seemed to keep the spacing more correct, IMO.

‘Nuff said about that. I really like the chest. Great combination of woods.
