    Walnut Blanket Chest

    Put together a blanket chest for a client, 40" x 20" x 16" high, nothing special design wise but some pretty nice walnut. The client is going to do the final sanding and do the finishing on it

    Boy that is pretty! Hopefully you can share some pics after it's finished so we can see that walnut pop!

    That is some pretty chocolate. Nice use of the figure on the front. My favorite wood to work with and have in my own home.
