Woodworker: Hikmet C. Sakman

Sakman’s interpretation of this Arts and Crafts dresser includes graceful elements that break up the typically rectilinear style, such as a tapered carcase and curved corbels. The dresser is made primarily from quartersawn white oak. The curly white oak side panels have wenge details, and the drawers have yew sides and are lined with Tennessee cedar bottoms. Sakman finished the piece with aniline dye, orange shellac, glaze, and hand-rubbed varnish.
