A Simple DIY Plywood Blanket Chest

A neighbor friend of mine asked me to build a simple, plywood blanket chest for their cabin. They planned to paint it so they wanted to use cheap, pine plywood from Home Depot.

I used my Festool Domino to join the corners but you could easily do glued and screwed butt joints or long splines instead. Box joints would work really well too if you have a box joint jig that will support pieces this large.

The final blanket chest was 60" long, 18" deep, and 26" tall.
