Contrasting Lid Blanket Chest Woodworking Plan

Our Price: $14.95

Product Code: GR-01381


This chest holds more than blankets. It also holds your gaze thanks to a lid with curved ends and a figured panel, plus angled ends and subtle, elegant details. Blanket chests are great for storing linens and bedding. But they're also big boxes that often end up "storing" other things on top. The beautiful design of this chest ensures you'll want to leave the outside fully visible, so you won't turn it into a piling place. Thankfully, the extra details that mark this elegant chest don't add a lot of complexity. Veneer creates the contrasting lid panel. A router and plane help form the curved lid ends in a few simple steps, and the angles are easy to create.

Overall Dimensions: 41-3/8"W x 16-1/2"D x 18-1/2"H
