Blanket Chest

 In American Woodworker Blog

From a few old Oaken barn rafters?    Yep,  after pulling a few pounds of nails, resawing down to about 3/4" thick, and planning down nice and smooth, I wound up with a nice stash of White Oak.  Purdy, ain't they? Made a box out of some of the parts I found a plan by Norm Abram  and started to mill up.Next, a top was glued up, and then flattened out with a few handplanesa couple planes usedThen time for some stain and varnishNot too bad? Size is 18" wide (plus overhand of lid), by 40" long (again add a little for the overhang), by 22" tall.
