Build a blanket box for much needed storage. Of course you could use it for a boy box instead. Great as an extra seat in a bedroom too. Follow along with the free step-by-step instructions to build your own.
If you sell your work, personalized items are always popular and sell very well because they are not available in the mass produced marketplace. So do not overlook the addition of simple signs, desk plaques, names on blanket chests and toy boxes. Make your projects and gifts more personalized with the letters of the alphabet. This 26 letter set are the lower case letters of the alphabet. A simple set that you can reduce or enlarge using your own printer or photocopier. We also sell the upper case alphabet, see plan 05-WP-011.

Keep blankets, clothing or favorite memorabilia in this old-fashioned storage chest reminiscent of the trunks the pioneers traveled with years ago. This trunk features a tray that lifts up when the lid is raised. The tray offers extra storage and helps support the open lid.
Build this chest with your preferences for style and complexity in mind. The Traditional American look in mahogany requires dovetailed corner joints cut by hand or with a router jig. To simplify matters, try the Casual Contemporary version in contrasting woods such as ash and walnut, with rabbeted corners joined by screws and covered with plugs.
Complimenting our Mission style collection, the interior of this cabinet measures approximately 17.5 inches high, 24 inches wide and 15.25 inches deep. Choose to use tempered glass for a see through panel, or replace with wood panel. Complete mortise and tenon construction but you could use screws instead. Use whatever wood material your budget will allow, best built using a hardwood.
This rugged toy box has solid-wood parts so it can handle kids scooping toys from it for generations to come. The sliding tray keeps smaller toys from being buried. And because of the simple screw-together joinery, you will have this toy collector built quicker than kids can make messes. Then, after its owner grows up, you can put it to work holding blankets, linens, or clothes.
What immediately draws your attention to this paneled blanket chest is all of the detail the sculptural bracket feet, the layered molding at the base, the chamfered corners, the balance of the molded panels and the drawers, and the bullnose lid with its narrow shadow line.
