This cedar chest was made by President Jimmy Carter in 1996. Today, the piece stores woolen blankets in the master bedroom of the presidential home in Plains, Georgia. President Carter says that he used a lot of dovetail joints on this piece, which he cut by hand using a saw and chisel. Noted is the carved rose detail on the top of the chest. This furniture piece was selected for 3D documentation by the USF CDHGI with input and collaboration with the Carter family, the National Park Service, and the Friends of Jimmy Carter National Historical Park. The furniture was documented using 3D laser scanning with structured light instrumentation and photographic techniques with a photogrammetric model shared here.
