Very impressive… I like how well the wood grain matchs up on the drawer faces. How many hours?

The drawers are resawn from a piece of 5/4 material to a thickness of .040”. They were glued to a base of brick stacked poplar with a total thickness of 7/8”. The base material was approximately 5-1/2” deep x drawer height. It took that much depth to get the curvature needed for the drawer front to end up at 7/8”. I had approximately 180 hours start to finish.

Wow, super sweet. From the one photo, this looks beautiful, would likd to see more details, like drawer joinery. What finish did you use?, how did you create the beading around the top? – scratch stock – router?Very nice work, shows real craftsmanship.

Wow! Thanks for sharing that. Would love to see the drawer joinery and bottom, either way it’s an amazing piece.
