    Here is the finished blanket chest - 5 years later.
    I started it, then set it to the side for all those years.
    I finally decided to complete it by gluing up boards for the top and deciding what type of cutout I wanted to make for the bottom.
    I went with something simple.
    As for the finish, I used three coats of Bush's Oil for the first time and I absolutely love it.
    Make sure you use it in a well-ventilated area, preferrably outside.
    The wood shimmers like a hologram.
    Definitely my best project to date.
    Thanks for looking.

    Very nice! I just started milling my own wood from my yard and found I have a bunch of Ambrosia Maple. I'm not into turning and was wondering what to build with it...I think I just decided!!!

    MAPLE! You used presious maple to make furniture?! You could have made a bow!
