  3. Blanket Chest - Mission / Art&Crafts Style

    When I found the plans for this Mission / Arts & Crafts Blanket Chest in Wood Magazine (Feb./March 2005), I just knew that it would just look great sitting next to my first big furniture project, the Barrister's Bookcase and it would provide additional temporary seating as a bench. As with the...

  5. Another Wedding, another Blanket Chest

    Built from Poplar, and keeping with the spirit of the "old design" I built it the old way with a combination of hand and power tools.

  7. Cherry craftsman style blanket chest/toy box

    Made two of these bad boys awhile back, a blanket chest for a customer and a toy box for my daughter. They were identical.

  11. Blanket Chest for my Daughter

    When my wife and I found out we would have a daughter I knew that I would be building her many things throughout her life. When we found out that we had lost her at 22 weeks I knew I had to have something for us that would hold everything we had of her during her short life. I thought a blanket...
  12. Raised Chest

    A shaker style "boarded" chest made from taphole maple. This was adapted from one in the (excellent) Thomas Moser book "How to Build Shaker Furniture" but I've made quite a few changes. I changed his overlay doors to inset ones (done with a bit of maloof-style added to the web frames) and used...
