Black Walnut Chest
Wilson built this chest on chest using walnut harvested from his grandfather’s property in Indian Land, S.C. He used plans from Thomas Elfe Cabinetmaker by Samuel A. Humphrey (Gibbs Smith, 1994). The chest was built in three sections—the lower case of three large drawers, the upper case of smaller drawers, and the crown of fretwork and carvings.
