Great piece. Great paneling, too. Did you do that as well?

Tyler, thanks! I wish I could even claim the location. We found an original Sears kit house that was intact, and was perfect for the shoot. Lucky on that one.

Great work. Nice finish and hardware. You are teasing us by only including one picture. We want close-ups!

This is the same piece from the book “Authentic A & C furniture projects” published in 2000’ by Pop W/W that you built correct? I had to get the book off of my bookcase when i seen this. I wasn’t a big fan of the biscuits on the side panels but i guess it made it approachable for alot of people, me included at the time. I thought the dovetailed drawers were excellent! And the hardware help ‘set the piece off” in my opinion.
Thanks for posting!

I’m afraid rivergirl is right. If you want hand-done laborious work, you’ll have to talk to Chris. :0)

ToolGuy- as I said in a previous post on another item here on L/J: /on’t misunderstand me, I don’t build this beautiful mission stuff- it is way above my pay grade and I have no tools/skills for that kind of work. But I do love the good stuff. I had my mission repros built by a friend in B.C. Canada and had it flown in. Those were the days….......... ;) Oh, and he never used biscuit joinery. HAHAHAHA.
