This project was for my Daughter Bed and chest were built from lumber I cut had milled and dryed the Chest is jointed with dove tail jointery on the drawers with sliding dovetails on the dividers. The two fan drawer fronts I hand carved.
The horse is from a popular tree felled by a wind storm the horse was built for my first Grandaughter.
