This tansu is made from Butternut (a relative of Walnut), Figured Walnut Veneer, Cypress, and Poplar. The carcass and drawers are joined with hand cut half blind dovetails. To break up the field on the doors, I used a large panel of Walnut reducing down to a smaller Cypress panel. The woods were selected for their rustic qualities but used in a refined manner. Forged iron hardware finish everything off.
