This is a bedroom set. The box is made from 3/4” maple plywood with a solid wood (poplar) edge. The drawers are solid Maple dove tail drawers with a lacquer finish. The draw fronts are solid Walnut with a brass nuckle inlay. The brass nuckle was cut from 1/4” solid brass. We used a 3/4” plexiglass template to cut the pocket for the brass nuckle on all the drawer faces. I used double stick tape to attach the template to the Walnut faces and cut it out on my inverted pin router. The boxes were painted white then cleared with a conversion varnish. I turned all 8 legs on the lathe from solid Walnut. This project was made @ Prestige Casework for a designer named Dan Greene. What do you guys think? I don’t care much for the white boxes. The drawer faces were made using 8/4 Walnut and re sawed to get the matching look on each draw face. The backs were also finished so they don’t have to be agents the wall.
-- Have a great day.
