Thought I would go back and revisit a piece I did about 2 years ago.
Had a guy come into the shop that I share with Great American Carpentry Co. He was a client of theirs , they had just finished up a nice addition on the home.
Steve started asking me questions about the finish I was using on a Elm Hunt Table we were refininshing. His next question after pointing at a highly carved Chippedale arm chair "can you build this" yeah but they'ed be real expensive was my answer. Can you build a chest? "sure anything you want Steve" was my reply. "let me show you some photos, so in my office we went. As I was going through my pics on the computer, Steve pics up a Wallace Nutting book. The following picture out of the book is what we decided on in a matter of about 5 minutes. I was stunned to say the least. I immediately called Ed to see if this guy is for real. He is and off we went. My instuction was to build it the way I would for myself.
Here is the lower case before the glue up.
The next couple are of the blocking for the bracket feet.
Detail of the cornice.
Ready for some color.
Just about ready to deliver. The hardware from Londonderry Brasses make it all come together.
