Summary

No project has more universal appeal among woodworkers at every skill level than the blanket chest. Itrs"s a simple form - essentially a large box with a lid - and yet it can be complex, elaborate, and intricately detailed. This collection of 30 original designs by artisans from around the globe illustrates the versatility of the chest, one of the oldest forms of furniture. The book opens with an overview of chest-building techniques; following are the chests, each of which features design and construction details, working drawings, and technical details of the more challenging pieces. Chests range from traditional to contemporary and offer inspiration to woodworkers and furniture makers of all skill levels. Approximately 200 photos and 50 drawings illustrate these designs.
