Tongue And Groove Blanket Chest PLAN


SKU: Tongue And Groove Blanket Chest PLAN Category:


UPDATE: This is one piece of an entire bedroom set. If you are interested in the entire set CLICK HERE. This strong blanket chest build was designed to match my 2×4 and 2×6 bunk bed, 2×10 bookcases, and my chest of drawers build. This entire set of furniture was made from dimensional pine from a home center. Materials cost to build this blanket chest where I live is about $100 (including glue and finish) depending on where I shop. Every piece of solid pine on this project was cut from 2×10 lumber from a home center. All knots were avoided as I selected the best parts of each board for each part. The blanket chest is a solid design and a great skill builder for a few types of joinery. The frame assemblies are made with tongue and groove joints with floating panels. Material can be resawn for solid wood panels in the frames or you can use plywood. The main assembly can be either mortise and tenon, floating tenons, or dowels. There is a lot of flexibility with the project allowing you to complete it with the joinery you choose. The overall size is 19″ high, 18″ front to back, and 40-1/2″ left to right. The plans are in imperial units only at this time. The plan includes the following:

  • 14 detailed pages
