This custom blanket chest is made with spectacular figured walnut and tiger maple. It features hand-cut dovetails where the sides meet the rear panel, while the front is mitered into the front-sides so the grain is continuous and wraps around the front. The interior features aromatic cedar floor, a pull-out tray and a carved plaque. Supporting the chest are ogee bracket feet which are hand-shaped. The lid features a maple and walnut scallop shell inlay and the front inlaid escutcheon is made of maple. This chest is a significant piece of furniture, measuring 42" wide x 21" deep and standing 26" tall, but I can make a similar chest to any size requirements.
From my client: "The blanket chest Kerry created for me should be featured in a magazine. His workmanship and artistry are exceptional, at a price that is more than fair. Communication was always great."
