Casement Window Blanket Chest
“This was a project of perseverance over 17 years and three different shops,” Matthew said of his blanket chest. “It came together as I developed my hand-tool skills, took six woodworking classes, and refined my sense of ‘what looks right.’” The design was inspired by casement windows on 19th-century apartment buildings admired during a visit to Berlin, Germany.
