A friend of the family asked me to make this custom blanket chest to fit into the space she had available at the foot of her bed and to match the color of her bed. The chest is made from birch plywood and cherry trim. it measures 30 inches high x 16 inches deep x 58 inches wide by her request. all hardware has a brass finish. She has a older home where the floors are not real level so there are 4 adjustable feet, hidden on the bottom of the chest.
the stain used was Minwax English chestnut #233. it has 6 coats of Minwax Fast drying clear gloss polyurethane..
It took 8 days to build this chest, 2 days to build, sand and stain. 6 days to poly and sand
