Curly Cherry Dresser/Display Case

This is a multiple drawer dresser constructed from solid curly flitch matched boards in combination with flat sawn cherry. The top is partially glass and allows the user to open the entire lid for access to items on display or, to simply view the items as the lid is in the closed position.
This entire piece is in three sections including the legs and skirts. All cabinets and legs are constructed using mitered joints only, no screws or nails were used for structural integrity. Drawers glide with wooded guides and the top uses inlaid flush mounted butler hinges.
The back is mounted inside a carefully constructed mitered case (for the top and bottom cabinets alike) and therefore the mitered seams are the only areas viewed. Sap wood on the back was intentional in order to draw attention to its seamless finish, since it can be placed in the center of a room and look beautiful from any direction.
