Blanket Chest #2 – Jamie

Blanket Chest Jamie

This is my second chest to build. As you can tell its just a pocket hole skeleton with panels attached to the inside. At the time I did not have a decent setup to do mortise and tenon joinery or floating panels. This is a cheap way to get the look of floating panels. This was made for my wife (girlfriend at the time) as a birthday gift. It is all pine. The finish is 2 coats of thinned 50/50 Amber shellac/Denatured alcohol with a brush on poly. I know your not supposed to put poly over shellac but its been a couple years and it has held up quite nicely. It is roughly 24” x 24” x 44”.

  1. You can put just about any finish over shellac. Shellac is the all-purpose undercoat.

    Amazing looking for a pine chest.
