Built this chest as a birthday gift for my mom, she collects buttons / pins.
The case is walnut, the drawers are soft maple with tiger maple fronts.
The case is finished with two coats of general finish’s American Classic water based die and several coats of a 2# cut of shellac
The drawer fronts are finished with a 3 to 1 mixture of general finishes Empire Red and American Classic water based dies.
A lot of firsts for me on this one, first time making my own molding, first time doing a frame and panel(back) and my first time doing a booked matched panel (back) – i almost love the back more then i do the front of this piece :)
