Here’s another great build of my blanket chest. I like how he put the piano hinge on the back. Much easier than the traditional route of mortising for separate hinges. I like the finish as well. It has a certain rustic (?) look that makes you look longer. Kenneth writes:
Whats up Jay. Here is my no frills chest. With this being my first attempt I can see all the flaws. That being said, My daughter thinks I knocked it out of the park! She loves the design, and she picked her stain color. With this project being for her and not me, all I can say is thanks man. I learned a lot and it was fun, plus I get to be a hero. I’m definitely going to try it again and I promised my wife the larger 2 x 4 version. Thanks Jay, you the man baby!
