A lot of handwork on this case. I left the dovetails and through-tenons proud. Which made sanding and finishing a little fussier, but I like the look. Finished with shellac and pastewax. Some people don’t seem to care for pastewax over shellac, but i do.

Very well done, I did use pastewax in the past but it seems to attract dust, it s just my imagination or does it have something to do with it. Where is this piece is going to sit.?
Anyway I like it and I’m not the only one for sure.
Keep on the good work,

Very nice woodworking elements – overlaping corner joinery and drawrs layout looks pretty interesting. Definately not boring design.

This piece will be sitting atop a dresser in a bedroom.

I’ve had a similar problem with the dust, but I think the wax finish is easy to clean and maintain, and I like that just about anybody can reapply it when needed. Although, not everybody is interested in waxing a piece of furniture when it’s needed.

I’ve had trouble with dust and poly in the past too.
