This is another one of my signature pieces. The piece was copied from an original in a museum. The legs, stretchers and case sides are in maple. The drawer fronts and front apron parts are veneered in walnut burl. All the moldings are made from solid walnut. The secondary woods are mahogany and poplar. The brasses are made for me in England. The finish is a layered analine dye under an oil based stain, then shellac is applied for the final finish. Only had two pictures of the piece. Hope you enjoy it.
