  5. Curly Maple Chest with Antiqued Escutcheon

    From the album 18th Century Connecticut Blanket Chest

    I absolutely loved making these chests, I made a few of them then stopped, I was combing through my archives and found images of this chest, we still have this chest in our home today.
  6. Blanket Chest

    Just got the blanket chest off of the bench Friday. Now going to wait until the weather gets warmer to take back out in the shop and stain and varnish. Took the 6" carsiding and put in a extra groove from the router to make it look like 3" . The 6" looks good on the bed for as big as it is but the 3" looks better for the chest for as small as it is.

  9. Blast from the past, No.2

    Now IF I can find those pictures... Friend of mine cut down and old Cedar tree. He even used parts of the 2x6 boards he cut from the tree to make a ...(wait for it..) PinNic table. However, I was able to rescue a few boards for this little chest Looks like three drawers? Welllllll Not quite, top "drawer is a fake. Bottom two are the real ones. Solid Cedar, has some secondary wood of pine inside. Mainly runners for the drawers and parts for the drawers. Three coats of Poly Gloss Chest is still in use, in the bedroom. Had to resaw on a tablesaw to get those 2x6s down to something I could work with....
  10. DAB was taking about making projects from a picture and it brought to mind this Cherry Blanket Chest I made a couple of years ago. I was working with a designer in Vermont and I'm in Alabama. She sent me this picture with the note on the top for me to build the chest by. I was told I could make my own design as long as I followed as closely as I could to the one in the picture. So I got started on it and here is the Cherry Blanket Chest that I built from the above picture and the dimensions given. I was sent a color sample to match and I used Lockwood Dye to get the color to match. If you haven't used dye you should give it a try. I sprayed the dye on and got a very nice finish. I used a combination of Router bits to make the moldings, but most of it came from one bit that was used to make small boxes. The Chest is Cedar lined and has Torsion Hinges from Rockler on the lid. The finish over the Dye is General Finishes Enduro-Var and was also sprayed on. When I finished the chest, it was crated and sent to Vermont and I wasn't told until I get picture back of the chest in place that is was going in one of four houses the client owned. This was their ski home. What was really unique about the home is that every piece of furniture in the house was custom built by a different Artisan. I was lucky enough to be chosen for the blanket chest that was at the foot of a Cherry Sleigh Bed. I have since worked with this designer on a couple of other projects.
  11. 18th Century Connecticut Blanket Chest

    From the album 18th Century Connecticut Blanket Chest

    I cut the planks down during the original stages of this project so that they would land in the center face of the chest. I finished the chest with boiled linseed oil followed up by Amber Shellac.
  12. 18th Century Connecticut Blanket Chest (skirt)

    From the album 18th Century Connecticut Blanket Chest

    The skirt was scaled and drawn up per plan, per the authors directions I band sawed the curves to about an 1/8" of the line, then I finished it up with chisels and rasps. It's really neat, the bottom edge of the curly work, has a neat chiseled effect and texture. The corners are mitered and heavily blocked behind the miter joints for reinforcement.
  13. From the album 18th Century Connecticut Blanket Chest

    I don't remember if the raised panel was part of the American Woodworker plan or not, but I raised the drawer bottom panel by hand with a Stanley No.4 smoothing plane. It turned out really nice and I was very happy with the results.
  14. 18th Century Connecticut Blanket Chest

    From the album 18th Century Connecticut Blanket Chest

    This is a pine chest I made and what a fun project this was. I was perusing an older issue of American Woodworker and found this amazing chest that the author and maker reproduced from an original chest made in the 18th century by John Wheeler Geer of Preston Connecticut. The hinges are hand forged, I purchased them from Fisher Forge, The forge is run by David Fisher and he makes everything you see on his business site. I made the dovetails with my Keller 1601 jig. I cannot hand cut dovetails to save my life, but I do love my Keller! Just like the original chest, the drawer is on wood friction slides, there is nothing of modern technology on this chest. When I took the images of this chest I had the colonial handle pulls and half mortise lock set on the way to my home, on other words they were not installed yet.
  15. Cedar Chest

    I started this cedar chest a month back and then got bronchitis and couldn't seem to get over it. Anyway back on the chest and will hopefully finish it this week. Yesterday I got the dovetails sanded flush and got the skirts cut and installed around the bottom. I have the top panel already glued, just need to cut to size and put on the trim, install the hinges and it will be ready for finish.
  16. I don't care how old this chest is, it's been refinished, retrofitted with non original hardware, and it has no legacy, nothing, nada. This guy is kidding right? That being said, you don't need lineage or legacy for a historical piece to be of value, furniture can be graded by other means, but this piece has no other means, not even the original finish. This chest is nearly 300 years old, pine would have a much deeper amber patina to it with that amount of time behind it. So either two things are happening here: He sanded it down before refinishing, in which case the piece is worthless. He Found a chest that is much later than originally thought in age. If you look at the darker spots where dings and nicks have formed, they are left virtually black in color, indicating the surface was completely sanded, leaving behind the darker nicks below the sanded surface. This may have been a great piece, until the refinishing took place. Then this fellow goes and adds hardware to it in the form of a chain or something to that fact. I am not a furniture historian by any means, but things just don't add up. Here is the $68,000 eBay link

This is a really cool chest for your shop, it's basic, it has a nice cut list on the second page, and you can use this as a jumping off point for your chest or build it per plan, your choice!

  19. I got a picture last night from the customer that got the Cherry Blanket Chest I made. It seems she is really happy with it and thinks she may want to stay in it for a while. That smile makes building the chest worth every bit of it. Nothing like a happy customer.
