  1. Well, wife has been wanting me to build her a cedar/blanket chest for 5 years now - but it always seemed to be put on the back burner. Recently the church asked me to make another set of cabinets and a bookcase, but before I set out on that project, I knew I needed to get her project done. Actually I was able to work on both projects at the same time. I always start my projects with a Google Sketchup rendition - I need plans!!! Those of you that can build stuff without plans I applaud you! You will notice what looks like a stick on the left - originally wife wanted a clothes ra
  2. From the album: 18th Century Connecticut Blanket Chest

    I cut the planks down during the original stages of this project so that the knots would land in the center face of the chest. I finished the chest with boiled linseed oil followed up by Amber Shellac.
  3. Just to put what I had so far on the Cherry Blanket chest in one post. The Picture below is the sytle I am building this chest like. The sides and ends of this chest will have the boards vertical instead of horizontal. In order to keep them as flat as possible and not have so much sanding to to at the end I have been putting them together in sections. First I laid them out on the table after they were cut and run across the jointer and and through the planer to get close to finish size. This let me look at the grain and try to match it so it looks like a se
  4. Well for several weeks I have posted some pictures of this chest and I am happy to report to you that it is finished. Just a recap. Started with a visit to the Wood Stash and hand picked some of the best looking Cherry Boards from the stack. Cut them to size, ran them across the jointer and then through the planner. I then took the cherry boards and edge glued them together to make the panels for the front, back and both ends of the chest. Then I put two of these panels together to make a four board panel.
  5. I got the Cherry Blanket Chest shipped out last week and I have been worried about it getting damaged in shipping. Today I received an email from the person I was working with and she told me it arrived in perfect condition. She sent me a picture of the chest in it's new home. I am so excited that it made it and it looks like I got the stain about right for the Sleigh Bed it is sitting at the foot of. Now I can breath a little. Shipped it on Old Dominion and they did an excellent job getting it there.
  6. Starting up.... Ripped from a wider plank of 5/4" Maple...bandsaw ripped to a 1-3/4" width....needed jointed.. Wasn't quite right...wanted to tip a bit.... Used a no.14 jack plane...this bigger plane, a Ohio Tool Co. No. 0-7 worked decently on a few longer rails Charles Neil had stained the panel...needed to remove the coloured parts... No. 4 smooth plane seemed to work....soon had a pile of parts.. Set most of this aside. This morning, at a yard sale, found a couple pipe clamps for a ten-spot.. About 5' long or so....ca
  7. After about 3 months of off and on work I finally completed the blanket chest I've been working on. This is definitely my most challenging project to dare and it required to try many new techniques. Some of the firsts included breadboard ends, hand-cut half-blind dovetails, and a dovetailed case. This took me quite awhile and I made several mistakes but it feels good to get it done!!
  8. View File Workbench Magazine Mar-Apr 1966 Early American Blanket Chest This is a scanned document of the now defunct Workbench Magazine of this era. Permission was granted by the new Workbench Publication for The Patriot Woodworker community to copy and use the old Workbench Magazine at our pleasure, and for free distribution and re-use. 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!

  10. 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.
  11. I am working the Elves overtime. So close to finishing all the projects but these are to be picked up tonight and tomorrow and this is where I am right now. I have a Cherry Blanket Chest that will be cedar lined and delivered on Christmas Eve is almost assembled, but still has to be stained and finished. The top is clamped up and ready to be assembled. So this will be a push tonight and in the morning. We also have a Green Egg Table to be picked up on Christmas Eve morning. It is assembled all but screwing the top boards down and spraying on the finish. A

  16. Well, this is going to be the final installment on this TPW Team Project to build a Cedar Lined Walnut Blanket Chest for my Grand Daughter Nori Piper Worsham due in mid November 2014. Being that I live in Southern California and my son and daughter in law live in Indianapolis, Indiana, building the chest and then getting it out there would require that I either drive it out in the back of my pick up truck, or I pay to ship it out. Neither option was really very good so I called both John Moody and Ron Dudelston because we were all going to be together at John Moody's house along with our wives
