The Woods are Black Walnut, Maple and Ebony.
The Legs are 5 sided and tapered. The inlays were all made up as 1/8”+ thick panels and glued on to the drawer fronts and doors which were also made from walnut. I saw this in an old book of antiques I scaled it down some to fit where it was going to end up.

Very nice. Did you make the sand-shade fans or get some of the pre-made ones and cut them up?

I made the Fans by shading the maple in hot sand. The trick it to make them larger than needed then recut after burning in the hot sand because they distort a lot with the heat.

Very nice. Did you use maple or holly for the stringing?

Thanks for the link to your website. The tip I got is to cut the dovetails in the drawer face ends prior to gluing up the pieces for a curved drawer (for veneer front) vs. hand cut after you cut the shape out.

Great work!
