Thanks! I considered cedar lining, but decided against it. This piece sits right in the living room and gets a lot of use, so we'd see any critter or bug that made it in there. We also don't have a moth problem in this area, so I decided to go with a zero VOC finish that wouldn't make any of the blankets smell (Rubio) and left it as it.
The supports don't have a soft shut, just a support feature. I would have preferred soft shut, but I didn't find any I like.
Beautiful! Have you considered cedar lining the chest? I have an issue with closet moths and have lost a lot of nice wool suits so I am particularly fond of the cedar. Also do those supports have "soft shut"?
Thanks Sean! I was pretty happy with the way that grain popped once I got the finish on it. Funny, because I tried something new this time, hated it, and redid the finish. Whatever works I guess.
Beautiful work, Seth! I love everything about the blanket chest. The color of that walnut and the finish made it pop! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Kevin. This was a long project for me, and it was the details that made it worth the extra time.
This is a beautiful piece. Love all the details. Fantastic work.
Thanks Sean! I feel like this one finally brought the room together.
Fits right in with the quality bookcases you built! The continuous grain was a nice touch as well! Thanks for sharing
What a great idea and excellent execution!
