This is the first major piece of furniture that I have made since setting up a retirement woodworking shop. It is designed to suit my grandaughters room and was mainly worked out on SketchUp which is also failrly new to me. The timber is a mix of odds and ends of ply,pine,hardwood eucalyptus decking offcuts and so on. The draw pulls are turned from branches fallen off trees on my property. Turning is also a new skill. I am a life-long hobby-artist and so tried another new artform – pyrography. The lion head is coated with a mixture of eucalyptus gum dissolved in alcohol.
