I made these for my kiddos. It’s sort of a test to see if they can take care of nice furniture. If so, maybe I’ll make them matching dressers someday.
I really like how the curly figure on the legs turned out. They were cut from this epic 2×12x12 curly cherry slab I found at a lumber place. It was just stacked with the rest, but one of those “when you see it, you buy it” boards.
Also, these are the first pieces I made with my new toy: a Festool Domino XL. Of course that made the joinery very fast. The rest, smoothing, flattening, and dovetails, were all done by hand. That seems to be the way I prefer to work these days.
Finish is Zinsser sealcoat(dewaxed shellac) and satin lacquer.
On to the next project. Take care, Red
