This was made with Chestnut and Walnut for a friend. The walnut edges were all book matched as were the breadboard style end pieces. The drawer handles were designed from an article in finewoodworking, I turned on the lathe from a scrap of rosewood I had from an earlier project.

The drawer sides are made from maple with wood runners, I made a small opening in the front to accommodate a drawer stop that can be swiveled up to remove the Drawer, keeps them from being accidentally pulled out.

This ended up being a pretty straight forward project with no real problems. I did compromise on the breadboard ends and glued the joint (it was only 9”) and I only allowed the breadboard ends to stay proud about 1/6” on the top. The lower shelf ends are proud by close to 1/8”, but the legs are attached there.

I will be adding an initial to the space between the drawers, I am cutting it on my CNC from Chestnut.
