This solid mahogany pair was made about 5 years apart. The highboy was made first. It was my first try at carving.
It is also the first piece of furniture I made.
The design came from a Fine Woodworking magazine. All drawers are dovetailed with solid oak sides and backs.
The finish is water based dye and poly. The magazine dresser was made from cherry. That’s a wood I have never used before.
The lowboy is just the bottom half of the highboy with a solid top. Thankfully I saved all the templates from the first project.
