Birch hunt board constructed comletely frame and panel by hand all panels were constucted with mortice and tennon corners (Bridal Joint) the panels were raised by hand with an vintage japanese plane i got almost a year ago apparently made specifically for that operation (much to my surprise i just thought is was a cool take on a block plane ..shagrin) all the panels were morticed in to the legs and pinned the drawer was hand cut dove tailed no guides for historical reasons finished with cherry color and lacqured top coated with a hand rubbed wax

You made a beautiful piece of furniture. It is awesome that you opted to raise the panels with handtools.

Take care,
