The High Art of the Lowboy

Elevate your skills with a regal case piece

by

This lowboy is about as traditional as American furniture gets, but it is still highly practical today. The lowboy can be used as a dressing table or hall table, and its design has lost none of its elegance in the last 300 years. Phil Lowe designed this piece to be the perfect project for an intermediate woodworker looking to grow as a craftsman. It combines a mortise-and-tenoned case with cabriole legs, dovetailed drawers, and a tabletop with a hand-shaped edge profile. A fan carving decorates the front of the center drawer.
