Dolphins in the Waves

I wanted to try something different. Knowing how difficult, if at all possible it would be to cut such tight corners in the block of cherry, I decided to cut partial shapes for the drawers. I then cut drawer fronts from contrasting hard maple.

I was able to cut the full dolphin shape in the carcass once the drawers were removed. This project was very challenging especially when trying to shape the dolphin drawer fronts so that they would fit without binding into the carcass.
