These are the legs and the support for the chest of drawers that I made as a project sketch for a bigger chest for my daugther. It is made of oak and chestnut with purpple heart dowels. I chose the Krenov style legs to see how it combines with the the Garrett Hack style chest, and to me it looks a good election. I hope you like it and thanks for commenting so I can make it better the next time.

Looks great! Love the “secret” drawer. The legs and cabinet make a nice fluid pair. I am building some Krenov style sawhorses or “shop bents” as Tom Fidgen calls them. I’m using oak and it is really tough stuff to mortise.

Beautiful work! It looks very nice standing there like it’s the boss! I see many hand tools so I’m thinking you did most of the joinery with hand tools?

Thanks a lot for your wonderful comments. I do everything with hand tools from sawing, resawing, planning and of course the joinery. The hardest part is sawing all the pieces by hand that is why before making a big one for my daughter I decided to make a smaller one. I spent one month/5 hours a day making it. I have to improve my joinery skills but I think that I am in the way. Thanks again.

Ouww lovely work.
Like the design. Think you suceeded on making something in the spirit of Krenow – and at the same time making something ‘you’.
Looking forward to see the final, larger pieze!
Thanks for sharing
