A blanket chest made about forty years ago. It’s lined with aromatic red cedar. The trim wood is gum. I cannot remember the specie of the panel wood.

Since your casket made top 3 I am looking around at the rest of your many nicely done projects. Stopped on this as I found it to be well made and a good design. I would like to see the front of the chest in more detail re: the inlay?


Guess your casket caused a stir. LOL!

Yes, I am amazed at what has happened in just two days. I expected no such thing. I think that most of the stuff on the site is much better than mine.

Anyway, I will take a fresh, close up pic of the inlay. It was thirty or so years ago but I am quite certain I got the inlay from Constantines. Back then I didn’t even know what the word Marquetry meant, let alone thinking I could do such a thing from scratch.

I have had some troubles importing images into my blog and these comments. If no other place I will try to add it to the project page. (LATER) Two close-ups of the inlay added to this project.

Thanks for the comment,
