One of several pieces I am making for a client – three of which are finished. This one is a credenza going into my client’s office. It matches an Aurora Pedestal Desk I have also made for him. There is also another credenza that goes in the conference room. I will be starting on the conference table soon and will post it when it is done – later this year.
This is a new pull – what I call the ribbon pull. The other pieces will have this pull as well. I will update my “Aurora Pedestal Desk” and “Aurora Media Cabinet” projects to show the existing designs with the new pull – as I get the photos taken.

Amazing work for sure. Looks a little different from past items I have seen you post and in your book I have. The black plug on the drawer fronts is new to me? Keep up the great work.

Thanks for the latest version of your designs. I’m going to be making a desk and these pictures sure help me visualize the various G&G details I want to include.

The base looks really nice with the wooden straps, similar to your blanket chest. The nice wide overhang on the top is dramatic, and really seals the deal for me.
Well done Darrell.

The pull looks like the one you showed me when I was in your blanket chest class a couple of months ago. Glad to see you worked out the details. I finally finished my blanket chest and are moving on to the Chiffoneer.

Thanks everyone!
Greg – yes that is the pull I was working on. Not sure what stage I was at when you were here. I have a box full of reject prototypes. Is it the Gamble Master Bedroom Chiffoneer you are starting on?
