  1. Only thing I would have done is cover the pocket holes inside then paint over them to hide them. Good video and build otherwise.

  2. Fill the pocket screw holes and the other screw holes with wooden plugs (Kreg makes plugs for their pocket screw holes), and sand them flush with the wood/plywood before finishing. Makes the fastener system invisible and a much neater finish. Otherwise nice build!

  3. You build like I do in some respects.  If that Blanket Chest had been on the Bismarck, it would probably be the only thing left that was still in one piece 🙂    It should last for generations.  Well Done !!!!

  4. Best investment I've ever made was getting the Kreg jig, at first I was a little skeptical about paying the money for it. It has paid itself off over the years. Thanks for the video, this will be super helpful when I go to make cabinetry for the shop!

  5. I like the general premise. Great build! You could easily take the set of plans and convert them to more of a custom "craftsman" type of build by using hardwoods all the way around, although that would add considerable sanding and finish time to the build. You could also line the inside with Aromatic Cedar… a very nice touch. A Festool Domino would be as easy and as fast to use as the pocket screws and you would not see any obvious signs of how you did the joinery. You could also choose from several different types of hinges to give yourself or customers a more customized look to it.

    Great solid build using a simple tools and easily converted to a more "sophisticated" look and build. Thanks Shawn!

  6. Great video and project! At 2:45 you mention putting a v groove in the joints to help the paint stick to the joints during wood movement. What kind of router bit is used for this?

  7. Really enjoyed watching you go through the build. My wife keeps wanting something like this, so I may have to take a look at the plans!

  8. Very nice. However I think the piano hinge kinda ruins it. There are much better and nicer hinges out there. Great video and explanation!

  9. Great job on the build Shawn. The chest is awesome. I like how a simple design can result in a beautiful piece of furniture. So nice of your friend to allow you to use his shop and booth.
