A modern chest of drawers made of sapele (Entandrophragma cylindricum) with home made brass pulls. Solid wood throughout, except drawer bottoms. Top and outer sides are made of single boards that wrap around the perimeter for visual continuity. Dimensions are 109×84 x 42 cm (43” x 33” x 17”). Finished with Danish oil and Renaissance wax.
Thank you for looking.

Very nice…........although I can see walking by this in my bedroom and catching my shirt on one of the drawer pulls.

I REALLY like the “case on feet” way you have the cascase “floating” above the base. A super design element, very well done.

- Well, that hasn’t happened yet. The pulls are rounded polished and facing downward.

Very nicely done. Love the clean modern lines.

Beautiful piece of work!
I like the minimal drawer pulls, an accent in brass which goes well with the wood.
