I was best man at the wedding of my best friend of 26 yrs (some perspective, I'm only 31) I asked him what he wanted for a wedding present, and damn him, he said a blanket chest (I didn't even bring up furniture)

So this is my version of a single board federal blanket chest. Its 43"x18"x21". the panels are cut from one piece of mahogany my grandfather bought who knows when.

Very nicely done, Bob. Good thing he didn't ask for a High-boy dresser if you ask me... :D

That is VERY nice, Bob. I would never have chosen mahogany, but I'm going to consider it now (I've got a similar blanket chest on the short list to build). Thanks for posting.

Great piece. This will be an heirloom for many years.
