Chest On Stand Build

These are pictures towards the end of the build process for my chest on stand piece.  It was inspired by traditional high boy/armoire pieces. The sketching process started with a significantly bigger piece with doors and a lower drawer. This was one of the more interesting and fun builds I’ve done.  It contains a multitude of unique iterations of traditional mortise and tenon joinery.  Working out the drawers functionality was a great puzzle to solve and added nice detail to the piece.  The oil finish really sets off the rich color of the walnut.  The finished piece can be seen on the portfolio page.
