Sweet.
Very well done.

I have so wanted to build a chest of drawers based on a Rodel design that I have lusted over. Maybe this will inspire me to finish it.

Thanks for the inspiration,
Steve

Nice work ! Didn’t know Kevin Rodel so I googled him ; nice inspiration indeed.

Can anyone tell me more about where the design of the triple raised footrest comes from ? Was is used by the Greene brothers ? Frank Lloyd Wright ? Is it a traditional design someplace ? Because I just build a walnut coffee table with a similar pattern too (photos of the project coming soon) and I was so surprised to see your work here with that same detail ! Makes me wonder where I saw it in the first place ? In my head, I thought it was a new variation on the traditional “fence” on the side of mission style furniture that I had come up with. Now I am puzzled.

Great design and build anyway ! All your projects are cool. Keep them coming.

Very nice table. I am inspired by Rodel’s work as well. He hit the sweet spot in blending the prairie style with Stickley and a hint of Greene and Greene.

That is beautiful. I really like the shelf/stretcher underneath. It looks elegant, unique, and certainly functional.
