This was inspired by one my Mom had in walnut. It took a while to get it figured out but the lower drawer is dovetailed and of normal construction. The top has a false front but revolves to store thread spools and a pins/needles tray. I added a magnetic catch that works even though the revolving tray will revolve 360 degrees. The fluted legs were a challenge and required more than one jig to finally find one that worked. Made from cherry with tapered and curved legs and solid wood throughout (no plywood).

Very well done. I built a night stand with some similarly complex legs awhile back and I ended up making 3 prototypes before I got the joinery correct.

Have your say...
