Chippendale Chest of Drawers
Woodworker: Michael DisanoDisano built this cherry and poplar chest of drawers from plans by Carlyle Lynch (1909-1989). Lynch, a woodworker and teacher of woodworking, was known for creating detailed plans of outstanding pieces of 18th and 19th century American furniture. The chest, finished with Danish oil, is 20 in. deep by 39 in. wide by 62 in. tall. Lynch credits Thomas Elfe (mid 18th century) as the original maker. See Lynch’s own article on building this chest in FWW #81.
