As a woodworking hobbyist in my spare time, I had always wanted to make the highboys in FWW issue #117 from 1996. With the work and detail involved, I figured it would be just as frustrating if I made 2 at the same time instead of just 1. I could not obtain or afford the highly figured curly Cherry but good quality Cherry looks great anywhere. These were a real joy to build.
