I call it “Unconventional” because it breaks from a traditional or reproduction type of piece in the use of dovetail joinery, brass hardware, and a sliding inner till.
I finished this piece in August of 2011, If you want to see or read more about it all of my blog posts have been collected here:
It is made of Red Oak with Black Walnut as an accent / contrasting wood. The dimensions are 18” across by 10” deep by 6 1/2 ” tall.
This was my real start at learning and working at the 17th century carving techniques I learned from Peter Follansbee’s video. All the carving work was done by hand as was 90% of the construction and joinery. I am really proud of this one.
