I made this entirely from reclaimed wood over 100 years old. I salvaged tongue and groove deck planks and wall studs from two homes built late 1800s. The owners were tossin’ all of said wood. They’re loss, my gain!
Cut, shaped and carved the hickory and steel handles. Drawers are dovetailed with ship lap bottoms. Drawer guides also hickory. Two coats of red chestnut and two coats of antique oil in the drawers. One shot of clear coat.
A gift for my sister.
