Woodworker: John IglehartIglehart built this dressing table (26 in. deep by 48 in. wide by 30 in. tall) for a client living in a Georgian-style former rectory. The finished piece had to match the existing furniture and the style of the building, so he borrowed the details from the architecture (a curved window, reeded fireplace moldings, and bronze fittings). The Brazilian mahogany is finished with a French polish, using garnet shellac. The top surface is vellum, and the pulls are bronze or African blackwood and cow bone.
