I saw this Blanket Chest for 8 Euros and had to buy it. It is full of character, but had no Drawer knobs. Of course I didn’t mind this as it gave me the opportunity to add something of my own to it. I don’t know how old it is, but as you can see from the joinery and especially the dovetails, it was built to be a functional piece of furniture with a beautiful exterior. I have an idea that the Drawers are veneered with book matched figured Birch because the Chest is Sweden originally and Birch would have been a common choice for this style of work. I selected Hard Maple to make the Knobs as it will darken to a close match over time and is very durable for regular use.

I like the idea of making my own Tools, especially if it is a Tool that is not easily found or readily available. Handmade Tools give great satisfaction and for me it is fun knowing that I created something to help me better improve my woodworking experience.
