From The Bay Blanket Chest

The gentle curved hardwood laminations that make up the Blanket Chest are from local Chesapeake Bay trees that have fallen in storms or were dying and given new life. The ebonized carvings in the Tulip Poplar on front and back are two different coastal bay scenes with whimsical play, and the bookmatched cherry crotch laminates on the ends lend a bit of formality to the piece. The ebonized white oak laminated legs and the top and bottom of walnut with the sapwood intact build on the theme of my Shadows of Night cabinet. The finely finished shellac polish exterior is a joy to touch. Open the blanket chest on its fine brass hardware and take in the soothing aroma of the red cedar laminations on the inner walls.
