Strongly evident in this blanket chest are the honest and simple lines of early American design. The one difficult operation in the construction of the chest would be the dovetail joints, as used on the original and shown in the photograph.

A personal note from me, I love this design, this is quintessential Early American true to it's design and practical use. This chest will make a wonderful project, and and wonderful hand tool project as well!
