I finished this chest of drawers about 2 week back. It’s called “Onderbroken”, that’s dutch. It means that the line has been broken. It’s made from walnut and maple. Always a nice combination.

dimensions : 310mmx240×810mm

The front has been cut out of a 52mm piece of american walnut that I had in the shop waiting for a nice project

Thanks for watching
