This is my first project posting to lumberjocks and actually is my first piece of ‘fine’ furniture that i have made by myself. The chest is Black Walnut with Poplar as the secondary wood for drawer sides & backs, drawer bottoms and a shiplapped back. The chest is joined with hand cut through dovetails and the drawers are joined with hand cut half blind and through dovetails. The drawer knobs were turned freehand out of black cherry. This is also the first project in which i used hand planes at almost every level of construction. Oh, and i want to add that the vertical partition is dovetailed as well ( i didn’t take a good picture of this, but wanted to mention it because it is one of my favorite parts of this project).
