I like the clean lines and overall proportions. Very nice.

Can you elaborate on the “white soap finish” ?

Also, what did you use for drawer runners.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Dave,
The danish way of finishing furniture is a soap finish. This blog have a good explanation:

It’s no drawer runner. This is traditional web frames and hand cut dovetails.

Norwegian, You make beautiful furniture, clean and solid. I really like the way the soap finish works with the oak.

Really great design. Well proportioned. Is the top screwed onto webbing at the top?
