The cherry dressers
A pair of dressers commissioned to complement The cherry bed. As you can see, they share the same leg shape and frame and panel sides and back, complete with African blackwood pegs.
These dressers are a textbook example of traditional frame and panel carcase construction, each containing dozens of mortise and tenon joints, and all the drawer are fully hand dovetailed, front and back. Note the fully finished back. Some people don't understand why I put effort into details such as this, but those who do understand, appreciate it.
The drawers are all solid wood, running on wooden runners. Some will argue that a steel ball-bearing glide may be more reliable, but fitting a wood drawer is a time honoured test of craftsman's skill, and I find the end result very satisfying.
The exterior of the pieces are finished with oil, but the drawers are finished with shellac to avoid the strong smell of oil in the cabinet's interior.
