This is a Walnut Chest of Drawers I recently completed. Solid walnut (even the back is solid walnut) that I cut and dried myself. For the case construction I used was blind DT’s. For the drawer dividers I used sliding dovetails with the web frame using loose tendons. Solid wood panel back. Secondary wood is ash, with solid wood drawer bottoms. Graduated drawers with the finish of BLO, shellac with a top coat of Waterlox varnish. Moldings were attached using dovetail keys. I cut a rabbet on 3 sides of the drawer fronts with the bottom flush then used a round over bit for the drawer front detail. It is 51 ½” tall and 32” wide and 19” deep.
