I had a batch of sappy walnut which I was trying to sell, but nobody wanted it. I tried to make something out of unwanted material. I decided that I would match the color of the sap on the tansu units with yellow flame birch. The handles are made of wenge, maple and ebony. The inside of the drawers are tiger maple with soft close slides, and the back of the tansus are shiplap solid walnut. The entire project is made of solid wood, including drawer bottoms. The modules consist of 17” squares, or multifples thereof. In other words, 17”h x 17”w x 17”d. The depth always stays the same, but the height and width can be multiplied by 17. For example, 34”w, or 51”w x 17”h, which makes a horizontal tansu. Or, 34”h, or 51”h which makes a vertical tansu. Or, 34”w x 34”h.
The tansu modules are very versatile. You can arrange them in many configurations. You can create your own entertainment centers, night stands, side boards, end tables, etc. I made platforms of different sizes and also stands for individual pieces.
