Made these items a few weeks back along with a Mirror frame, no pics of that yet. Walnut with solid Maple drawer internals, soft close hidden runners on the drawers for the Chest and handcut dovetails on the small cabinets. Ebony knobs were turned for me. The chest is seen from the back so tried to make it look nice from the rear too!

I wouldn’t change a thing on it. Fit and finish are excellent.

Thank you for the comments, the finish is an Oil/wax product meant for floors which has become quite popular over this side of the pond as its very easy to apply and is quite tough! The legs are rounded on the outside edge and have a rounded taper at the bottom which the pictures dont show too well. Close up pics available?

Really beautiful work here!

I have become a fan of walnut lately and one of these days, hope to turn out a project as pretty as this one constructed of walnut.

very nice. Usually I prefer to see walnut complimented with another specie since it’s very dominant, but in this case it actually has a nice balanced look to it.
