This piece is a cherry dresser commissioned by a friend. The design of this piece is fairly simple to build. Hand cutting the dovetails though is a different matter.

Fantastic piece; I love the top, and the placement of the draw handles.
Good work,

What? You didn’t custom – forge the handles? I’m disappointed.

Just kidding! Great piece!

I love the Greene & Greene details with the Pacific hardware. I was going to use the same hardware on my gentleman’s chest, but they weren’t black enough. Where did you find them? Also, what finish did you use on the cherry? I really like the way you masked off the dovetails for the finish.

Thanks for sharing!

I like the piece. It is simple and clean. But does this reflect an Oriental flavor you express an interest in? I’m not being anything but curious and anxious to learn.
