Hi all, haven't posted anything in a while, so I thought I would show some pics of a blanket chest that is almost complete.
It was made by resawing a 3 inch thick slab of crotch walnut.
The holes are sealed off from the inside of the box with 3/8" walnut boards, so it's a functional blanket chest.

Talk about unique ! That is about as good as they can come. Even contemplating the use of those slabs as a furniture piece sure shows your foresight and design capabilites. Letting mother nature come through in your work is nothing but positive. Thank you for sharing that with us.
My wife, grand daughter and two grandsons went wow.

PS:What finish did you use, it sure makes that walnut beautiful.
