    Greene and Greene blanket chest almost finished

    Here is the nearly finished Greene and Greene inspired blanket chest that I've been working on for the past couple weeks. It's made of cherry with purple heart plugs and splines. I've learned a lot. I got Darrell Peart's book Greene and Greene: design elements for the workshop a couple month ago and was really intrigued. I still have some finish sanding to do and the final finish. I've got some sap wood showing in the box joint on the right. The face was all heart wood, but when I cut for the box joint it exposed the sap wood. I'll have to try and figure something out to blend that in I guess. I've lined the inside with eastern red ceder.

    Thanks for looking
