This is a fun project. I bought some plans but changed the upper and lower middle drawers. The fans were a last minute idea

it looks wonderful. If you don’t mind me asking, where did you get the plans?

also, did you do the legs yourself or were those purchased?

I got the plans from New Yankee Workshop. They sat around for awhile. Then I got a book on amazon by Glen Huey? And I kinda took ideas from both. If I had it to do again I would have some scroll work around the inside of the knees on the legs. The legs are easy to make. You have to have a bandsaw. And a wood lathe is a big help for turning the pads. A spoke shave and rasp are also required

This is what I aim for. Pieces so nice my kids will fight over them when I Kack. Super nice work. Wonderful grain selection. Are the drawer fronts solid or veneer?

Somehow, “fun project” just doesn’t do justice to this piece. Gorgeous!

You are either very skilled and modest or high on laquer thinner! All of the pieces you have posted so far will be legendary. The wood combined with the style gives it a certain grace rarely seen in contemporary woodwork, masterful!

Great looking highboy. Very nice looking wood!

Did you leave off the finials off the top for a reason?
