This is a quartersawn red oak Stickley 913. It took about a year to make. The finish is ammonia fumed, boiled linseed oil, shellac, and wax. The drawer dovetails were all done by hand. Man that took a long time. It weighs about 175 pounds. The hardware is from Horton Brass. The drawers sides are poplar, bottoms oak plywood. Not quite perfect but getting better. It has a secret panel under the bottom drawer behind the apron. Thanks for looking.
-- Life is about choices. You can spend a lot of money on furniture and have really nice furniture; Or you can spend a lot on tools and have even more expensive, crappy furniture. I made my choice.
