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.
