Jarrah and makore chest of drawers
Derek built this chest of drawers for his wife; it features figured Jarrah drawers and a makore frame-and-panel case. “Essentially, the design is a modern bombé, with tapered and curved sides, and a bow front. The drawers required compound dovetails,” he said. The top conceals a dressing-table mirror, and the top drawer has a hidden Quaker lock to protect a jewelry drawer with sliding trays.
