Classic Woodworking: Shaker-inspired Blanket Chest (107)
In this week’s episode of Classic Woodworking, host Tom McLaughlin makes a Shaker-inspired blanket chest with bracket feet using an exterior of cherry and interior of white pine panels. He’ll use a special jig to create dovetail corners. This chest is functional, but is also a classic piece that’s bolstered by its distinct design.
