This is another project I made about a year ago for the same client that I did the previous post. We wanted to do something in the Federal style. Steve's request was Curly Maple drawer fronts and the upper was to be glazed to show off some great pottery.
The carcase was solid Mahogany. I chose White Pine as the secondary wood.
I used two different pieces for inspiration. For the base and cornice I chose the secretary on page 177 in Albert Sack's The New Fine Points Of Furniture. The upper is from a second Piece on page 175. I think they blended well to create a unique and functional piece of furniture.
Here is a detailed shot showing the joinery at the glazing bar intersection. Hard to see but horizontal bars half lap and that through mortices the vertical bar
I have been working on a set of 12 Louis XVI Dining chairs that I will be posting about soon.
