Woodworker: David LaneInspired by the collection of 17th- and 18th-century Chinese furniture at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Lane built this chest of drawers to learn Chinese joinery, and he did it without using any power tools. Finished with oil-based polyurethane, the wood is reclaimed walnut floorboards and beams from barns in Indiana and Missouri.
