Wenge & Poplar Blanket Chest
This beautiful chest is built on a poplar body joined with strong, durable box joints. Contrasting wenge base, thumbnail molding, handles, and lid frame add lots of visual interest. Built for my friend's first child as a toy chest, it could also serve as an heirloom blanket chest. The dimensions and combinations of wood to build this chest can be customized to suit your room.
