The box [blanket chest] is called a kerf box and is made of three pieces of wood. The bottom is pegged or sewn on and the lid has a carved recess that fits over the side. The third piece of wood is the side(s), it is one piece of wood that is kerfed, a v shaped dado at the corners, the ends are mitered. It is heated up bent and sewn together at the corner. There is also a special kerf called the Boaz kerf that was used to bend and fold the corners on some boxes.
