Cherry Chest Of Drawers

This three drawer chest of drawers is a versatile piece of furniture. Pleasing proportions and clean simple lines combine to form a piece that is warm and beautiful. It can provide additional storage for clothing, linens or other items in a home or office. This was built using cherry for the case and top. The drawer fronts are cherry with a lovely figure in the grain that catches the light. The case is constructed with hand fit mortise and tenon joinery, utilizing raised panels on the sides. The drawers are traditional dovetail drawers, cut and painstakingly fit by hand. The drawer sides and bottoms are maple giving the drawer interior a clean bright look. The drawer handles are made with walnut. Much of the shaping was done with hand tools. This allows me to work with quiet attention to how the wood is responding to each shaping cut and get the exact form that I want in my furniture.
