Close copy of a version from Fine Woodworking (I think it’s a Lonnie Bird design). Curly cherry drawers.

Thank you. It was my first attempt at cock beading the drawers. Time consuming, but it adds a lot to the look. Also used similar cock beading on the slant front secretary desk drawers in the other project I posted.
