Mini-chest of drawers

A chest of drawers, scaled down to serve as an office credenza. No frills, but all the important elements: dovetailed case and drawers, scrolled feet, even a full frame-and-panel back. Built in the manner and style of the c. 1830 chest of drawers described in The Joiner and Cabinet Maker (Lost Art Press, 2009).

Cherry and white pine with oil and varnish, 2012. The drawer pulls are by Kirsten Ross.
