Hello, I made this small chest of drawers after attending a workshop in germny with Garrett Hack so I did not forget what I learned with him. It is made with European oak for the structure and the drawers and also the side drawer´s front is made of american walnut, the details are in ebony and maple (because the holly that I had it ws not dry enough) The knobs are made with granadillo and redwood. Th sides and bottoms of the drawers are made with quarter awn oak and chestnut. Like always I only used hand tools exept for the knobs beacause I did not have a lathe so I used the power drill. I used french finish (i think that is the name in english) for the outside and two coats of shellac in the inside. I hope you like it.

Very nice. You obviously learned a lot and put it to use with a great project.

lovely cabinet. I heard Garrett speak about design a t a recent conference and I can see the Garret Hack features, including the small side drawer and the inlay along the front corners. The increase in size is a real nice touch.
