Storage chest

Hi all, I want to build a wooden storage chest to sit at the end of my bed to hold things like comforters, blankets, and pillows. I am a beginner and am looking for suggestions to build this with little frustration. Suggestions such as wood to look for, dimensions, materials needed, and tools needed would be greatly appreciated.

I built a blanket chest 15+ years ago using plans from the PBS show The New Yankee Workshop.  Norm's plans called for pine but I really don't like pine so I used ash.  The chest is constructed using traditional woodworking techniques and joinery.  You can watch the video on YouTube.



I recall it being a somewhat complex project, especially when it came time to glue things up, but I'm still using the chest.
