Woodworker: David BoyleSetting out to make something colorful and playful, Boyle built this chest of drawers, 29 in. deep by 56 in. wide by 35 in. tall. He started with hornbeam logs and resawed them to create the framework, and added a live-edge walnut slab for the top. The poplar drawer case sits on a nest of lilac branches, and Boyle cut an antique mason jar to create the pulls. The finish is milk paint, varnish, and wipe-on polyurethane.
