Alright…. I know that I have been posting quite a few projects the last three days, but I had to catch up since it had been a while. This should be the last for a little while at least.
Just finished up this Chest of Drawers for my 2 year old Daughter yesterday. This one is a similar design as my previous one, but many differences also. This one is Walnut (with sapwood) frame with Maple panels and spalted Maple drawer fronts.
I debated making the panels from solid spalted maple, but went with maple ply instead for stability. I also added curved rails on this chest of drawers and a nice curved bevel/taper to the legs on this one.
The handles are spalted maple and walnut also. Drawers are all blind dovetails made with my Akeda jig.
Finish: Rubio Monocoat Pure oil 2C, finished with Rennaissance wax. (The monocoat has a very flat finish on its own, flatter than I liked, so the Rennaissance wax was just used to give a light luster to the wood).
