This traditional Shaker blanket chest design harkens back to when horizontal wood grain was used on chest sides, allowing the carcase to be joined by dovetails and the sides to move together with seasonal changes in humidity. In addition to instructions for building the piece, the article gives a trouble-shooting primer on what to do when things go wrong with your dovetails. The design is adjustable.
