Hey guys, this will be the first project I’ve posted here and before I post it I just want to thank you all so much for the kind welcome I received. As soon as I signed up there was eight people welcoming me to the site on my profile page which is far more than I can say for any other woodworking forum that I’ve signed up for, It really is nice to enter in to such a nice little internet community.

So here’s the project it’s a Queen Anne Lowboy Dressing Table I believe is the correct term for it, although it lives in my hallway. It was originally stained but I went back, refinished with aniline dye and added a shell to the center drawer, also made it a drawer, used to be a false drawer.








Machined dovetails but still a nice touch I think


Sorry some of the pictures are blurry, I’m still working on my photography.

That’s beautiful. Nice dovetails too. The legs looked turned and very good as well.

Great job. I wonder why the original design had a false drawer. That seems like a bit of a waste of space. I guess if you want to be nitpicky, a lowboy isn’t the most efficient use of space compared to a chest of drawers, but still. Someday I’m going to build one of these. this and a drop front desk are my highest woodworking goals for my life.
