Default Completed Blanket Chest

I finally completed my wife's blanket chest. It is made 100% from walnut. The lid has end caps that are attached with a dove tail. The first two pictures show the routing process on the lid. Because of the approximate 50" length of the lid, I had to build a larger fence for the router table. It worked like I wanted. The last three pictures are the completed chest. If you enlarge the last picture, you can see the details on the lid.

Beautiful job Frank.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

My gosh, that is a beautiful piece of furniture! That high vertical fence is itself a nice shop project. Did you cut dados on the back of the fence?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
