here’s the project it’s a Queen Anne Lowboy Dressing Table I believe is the correct term for it, although it lives in my hallway. It was originally stained but I went back, refinished with aniline dye and added a shell to the center drawer, also made it a drawer, used to be a false drawer.









Machined dovetails but still a nice touch I think


Sorry some of the pictures are blurry, I’m still working on my photography.

Wow. Dovetail joint of the drawer keeps thinking. If the drawer front is solid then the dovetail had been done manually. I havent seen any router jig doing this indented dovetail. Can you lend us your secret? Thanks for posting.

Greg, your project was on the LJ front page when I logged on and it immediately caught my eye. Very nice build. As others have commented, your changes enhanced the beauty of this piece. I am curious about two things: 1. It looks like cherry. Is it? 2. Did you make the legs from scratch?
