My latest creation. A Queen Anne Lowboy made of solid walnut with maple burl drawer fronts. I took the apron scroll pattern from a Glenn Huey lowboy from a recent issue of Pop. Woodworking, but I changed it up a little bit to add the drop finials. Turned out to be a nice piece. It is finished with J.E. Mosers medium brown walnut aniline dye, sanding sealer, wiping varnish, and multiple coats of paste wax.

Did you make the legs? It took me several total screw-ups before I felt comfortable doing them but, I love to now. I went from 10 hours a leg to 10 hours per set. One of these days I’ll start working with & learning claw & ball.
You made one fine piece, thanks for sharing.

DanW, yes I did make the legs. You are right, it definitely take some practice to get them down!! I think the hard part can be getting 4 that are exactly the same!!

Steve, I do havea few pics of the build. I mainly have some that I took testing the drawer front look. I could send you a few if you’d like.

I built this same piece out of cherry last year. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/42733 I too added the finials which were not part of Glenns plan in PW. I will have to concede the walnut looks much better than the cherry. I plan on building another one of these in the future but will challenge myself to add ball and claw feet and a carved shell. I love the burl drawer fronts and the finish job you did on this piece; really stunning.
