A little progress on the heirloom blanket chest.

I posted a while back, but to refresh, this is the concept. To commemorate our 40th. At the rate I'm going with it, maybe it will be done by 2025 :)

It's been a while since I've chip carved, but I went with it, all but one of the five panels I did on one shot. I got the basswood from Arrowhead in MN, great guys to deal with and they will custom cut whatever you want, in my case 12 x 12 panels 5/8" thick.

I'm planning on leaving the basswood unstained, but that could change. The carved panels will be installed after finishing.

That's going to be really nice and it looks like you're doing great work on this. Can't wait to see it finished!
Wow, that's a whole other level of woodworking. Looking forward to seeing it finished.

Nice job on the carving, looks fantastic. The blanket chest is looking great also. mortise and tendon joinery is a great choice.
