  1. Hope Chest On A Budget

    This is a hope chest that I made for someone who requested it. No fancy finger joints, dovetails or raised panels here but not just a plain old box either. I quoted them on a "fancier" one first but it didn't suit their budget. This one yielded a similar look with a better price tag. The...

  3. Pine Blanket Chest

    Here is my version of Norm Abrams Blanket Chest. for all the joinery I recommend get his book and follow how he did the tongue and groove and panel plans. , also its on utube to watch and learn. It was quite good and I can say I learned a lot and did many test cuts to make sure I got it...

  5. The Kist (or blanket chest)

    As I tell my evening class students, by the time you have made a kist, you are well on the way to being a furniture maker! This is project 7 in our furniture making course at Lethenty Mill - and it is a pretty demanding one. Traditional kists always had a lock, as papers and personal...
  6. Cherry Blanket Chest

    Hi guys and gals, This is a rendition of Lonnie Bird's Pennsylvania blanket chest. The only differences are the trim, and the inlay in the drawer (because there was a bad spot and I didn't want to mill anymore lumber), the addition of drawer locks, and different hardware. The chest is walnut...

  10. Greene and Greene Inspired Blanket / Toy Chest

    This blanket / toy chest was inspired by the wood whisperer guild project with a couple of modifications. I used white ash since I didn't have access to white oak and african blackwood instead of the traditional ebony. I paid only a fraction of the price and I find the result perfectly...

  15. salvaged pirate chest

    Stuff like this is always my favorite, because when I start one one of these, I never know how it's going to turn out when I get done, & I like to make it look a certain way, old & beat up, not new looking & gift shop junky. These photos were taken after I got the two pieces put together, sanded...

    A Lane cedar chest built in 1954, originally in oak veneer, was painted by my client some 20 or 25 years ago in a red over green crackle paint that was in fashion at the time. He recently asked what,if anything, I could do to the chest that might save it, as it was originally his mothers. The...
