This is a commission piece that was made from the picture shown. The picture came from the website of an antique shop. I was given the picture and some measurements of height, length, and width. It is made of poplar (her choice) and stained with a stain I had professionally mixed for the wormy chestnut dining room table I made. The owner is calling it an antique reproduction, but I wouldn’t. You will notice that she asked for several changes from the original. I used 1/2” finger joints at the corners. The poplar came from a tree I had cut down and milled from my property. I turned the 1 3/8” legs myself, and made the drawer pulls too.
