This is the third one of these chest of drawers I’ve made. It is 36” high, 22” deep and 30” wide made with red oak and walnut. The face frame is cut in the curve using 2 X 4 pine, the final curve with a flush cutting bit against a MDF pattern, then veneered with thin red oak resawn on the table and band saw. Drawer fronts are red oak resawn, drum sanded to thin flexible pieces, then plastic resin glued back together on a curved form made of 2 X 6 pine boards. The inlays are walnut. The legs are 5/4” walnut laminated into posts then cut out on the bandsaw and sanded with a spindle sander. The leg design was done by experimenting on paper then cutting a MDF pattern. The sides are 1/4” oak plywood, kerf cut every 3/8” so they would bend in the slots cut in the legs with a straight bit. Inside drawer fronts are also kerf cut to bend as shown in the last picture. The finish is two coats sanding sealer and two coats lacquer, sprayed.

Very nice, I like it!

One improvement you could make is some more lighting when you take photos.

very impressive. That is some high skill level work. I like the bow sides and the overall scale & oroportion. Very unique.

Wow…

With the exception of the drawers, there doesn’t seem to be a 90 degree angle anywhere. Nice work on a complex build.
