Shaker Blanket Chest

Blankets can be large and bulky especially when folded. A blanket chest is an awesome piece of furniture that will store your blankets nicely.

The chest is built exactly as Shakers did in the 19th century-with the notable exceptions of biscuits to attach the feet, aliphatic resin glue and a few power tools that would have shocked and excited the brethren. You'll probably need to glue up a few boards to create panels wide enough for the sides, front and top. Prepare the panels for the sides, front, upper back and top. You might also have to glue up panels for the larger drawer pieces. This is a good plan for a very attractive blanket chest.

Build a chest that not only stores away your blankets but looks good doing it.
