Sorry but have a new business venture and have not been posting my hobby photos for a while. So please allow me to share this with you.

This set is made from recycled Yakal and Ipil. It also has a Cheval Mirror in the same style. I used finger joints pinned with ebony dowels for the case jointing as this timber has a tendancy to move a little. All drawers have the self closing mechanism and are dovetailed.

Wonderful eye-catching design, and well executed. Interesting joiner along the tops of the chests. Great build, thanks!

Wow – those are beautiful and the design is very creative, I love it. Wood combination is gorgeous. Will you be posting a picture of the matching mirror? – never mind, I found it and it’s beautiful, too!

The floating “box” concept really caught my eye. I’m not sure that is the correct way to express the your design but I like the way it looks with the curves on the side supports and the suspended drawer box. Kind of a modern shaker look with some curves thrown in for good measure.

Gives me an idea for my daughter’s bedside table.

Wow I really like what you did with the dresser. The side legs(?) are very cool and show the beauty of the joinery nicely.

The detail on the dresser top is awesome. I appreciate that attention to detail.

Really beautiful, I love the curves in the accent pieces and the slightly rounded/doweled joinery!

Dude…these are nice! Love how the curved accent is incorporated in all 3 pieces. Great details all around.

I’m speachless…those pieces are magnificant with G&G touch. I tried also similar thing with wide fingerjoints strengtened with dovels, but yours look much better.
