Default Easter Shore Blanket Chest Work In Process

Attached are photos of my current project for my wife. It is a Easter Shore Blanket Chest made from walnut. Plans can be found in Woodworker Journal, April 2004 issue. I deviated from the plans in that the feet are made from a glued up blocks of walnut and I did not use veneer, just natural walnut. I have to re-saw the boards, joint, plane and sand the boards to thickness. This is the first time I have taken pictures of a WIP.

The first three pictures are the front, rear and end panels which are rail and stile construction and dry fitted. In the next pictures, I have applied polyurethane the panels and have dry fitted again ready for gluing. The next picture show the bracket feet after band sawing the feet from a block of walnut. The last picture is the base with the last coat of polyurethane applied this morning. I now have to glue up the panels and make the boards for the lid, and complete the lid. I have decided to have a friend help me with the glue up because of all the joints and panel fittings that are required. I will post finished pictures when done.

very nice..
hint for the future..
finis/stain your panels before assembly that way no white line will show when the wood moves...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....

Those are some nice pieces. The massive legs are particularly interesting. You must have done a lot of hand work on them.
