Dress Up Your Drawer Fronts
Add veneer and cock beading to make your furniture pop
Burl veneer and cock beading work together as beautiful and functional details on period furniture. Steve Latta used these classic design elements in his Federal table. Veneering the drawer with beautiful burl gives the table a visual focus; the cock beading provides a frame for the burl while adding a subtle, eye-catching three-dimensional look. Here, he shows how to add them both.
