I made this for my 400-level furniture design class. The light wood is Sycamore, and the dark is Wenge. The five drawers are hand-cut dovetails and made of quartersawn white oak, fronted in sycamore. It’s a three-legged piece.

The yin and yang comes from:
1. The dark and light woods
2. The contrast between a curved element, and the rectilinear drawer boxes.

This was my first experience with coopering in furniture. This piece was also a great education in hand-shaping.

Great design. Nice contrasts throughout. What’s the size? It’s hard to get an idea of scale from the pictures.

Hello and Thank you all for the comments! To answer some questions, I went to Buffalo State College, I was a student in their Design program there. The size of the piece: It’s about 20 inches wide, and 55 inches tall.
