Walnut Chest of Drawers
« on: May 15, 2018, 08:14:48 PM »
A man has to build things for his daughters.  Many, many things. 

Daughter #3 needed a chest-of-drawers.  I had already made her some bedside tables, a 3-drawer bachelor chest, a desk, and a bookcase all out of walnut, so I needed to make the chest-of-drawers to match :). Here are some pics.  The desk:



 

The 3-drawer bachelor chest:



 

The bedside tables:



 

The bookcase:



 

So, now a chest-of-drawers :).  Here is the carcass:



 

The completed 6-drawer chest-of-drawers:



 

Now she needs a dresser and mirror :) :).  And she wants a walnut platform bed with drawers in the bottom of it :) :)

I have been accused for having a proclivity for walnut.  There is a good reason.  A man needs a big stash of walnut.  A Very Big Stash of Walnut if he has a bunch of daughters ::).

What did you use for the secondary wood on the back and drawers etc.?
75 Acres of hardwoods that i want to try to optimize for HW growth, health and habitat. Also interested in creating a few small stands of fruit/nut trees and sample of different native species

Wow, great craftsmanship. Lucky daughters.   Now we know why you hoard all the highly valuable Walnut. :)

   Good looking projects. Yes, daughters do things like that to you and granddaughters can sneak up on you too.

   I had a local doctor bought some walnut to make a rocking chair then brought his future SIL over to show him my stocks and he bought him several pieces for bowl turning and such. Seemed like the doc was cultivating a woodworker for a SIL.

Those walnut trees are lucky they found you Danny.  You uncovered and enhanced their beauty in such useful way that will forever be cherished as heirloom furniture by your family. Certainly it will be enjoyed for all future generations.  You have a gift Danny and very lucky daughters. 8)

Yes, they are branded with my name and company name.  Not dated, just branded.
