This large Shaker piece combines a cupboard and a chest of drawers. The carcase is straightforward dovetailed construction with a three-sided face frame added to the front. The drawers feature traditional hand-cut dovetails and the frame-and-panel doors use pinned mortise-and-tenon construction. A simple but effective center guide supports the three widest drawers and prevents them from binding. Details such as adjustable shelving, a mitered base, a frame-and-panel back, and a cove profile on the top complete the piece.
