Walnut frame with mortice and tenon joinery, curly maple veneer side panels and drawer fronts.
Drawers are solid maple with hand cut dovetails, handles are turned macassar ebony.
Top is walnut burl with walnut solid frame.
The sides taper out one degree, the front tapers out two degrees.
That means each drawer is a different width and depth.
Finish is oil and post cat lacquer.
With approximately twelve feet of dovetails to saw and chop I needed to move along in a timely manner so I made a jig to guide the coping cut and another to guide the paring operation.
