“Charlotte” Chest of Drawers
Woodworker: Nancy Brady
Nancy Brady was pregnant when she made this appropriately shaped chest of drawers for her final project at École National du Meuble (school of furniture design) in Montréal and named it “Charlotte.” The material is mahogany with curly and quilted maple used for the drawer fronts and accents. Brady handcrafted the aluminum drawer pulls, and finished the piece with shellac and lacquer. The piece took about 200 hours to build.
