A copy of an antique washstand in our kitchen, this was a wedding present for my niece and was my first attempt at turning. The wood was dyed with Analine dye (I tried making my own ferric acetate, but the color was not rich enough so I purchased powder from Highland Woodworkers) except for the inside of the drawer. I was a bit nervous about using poplar as a primary wood, but I think the result is acceptable. Blind dovetails were cut by hand. The finish is shellac with butchers wax.
