During this week long class you will build a blanket chest. You will have the choice of building either a Chippendale or a Federal blanket chest. We will send you a cut and tool list so you can provide your own material and tools. Lunch is included. Cost for this class is $1250.
Mon - Thur 8 - 4:30 Fri 8 - 3
We will show you how we go about cutting and fitting dovetails by hand with help from some modern machinery.
The major difference between a Chippendale or a Federal blanket chest is dovetail arrangement and feet
There are two dovetailed drawers with a single divider under the blanket compartment.
We have added two secret drawers which operate under the till. The lid of the till also acts as a lid support.
You have the choice of building a bracket foot. There are many options. A flat bracket or an ogee bracket foot.
There are several ways of building a flared French foot.
