Cherry seven drawer chest. - CLICK TO ENLARGE

Cherry seven drawer chest.

A seven drawer chest of my own design.  The design is based on the classic semainier chest of drawers and is a fusion featuring cabriol legs and veneered sides.  To soften the bulk of the 2 in. x 2 in. front legs, I shaped a curve into them. I expect the contrast between the walnut pulls and cherry drawer fronts to soften as the cherry ages and becomes darker. The sides, drawer fronts, and top are finished with french polish, and all else is finished with shellac.

Design or Plan used: My own design
