This is my favorite project thus far and first I’m posting to this forum. A lot of the questions I originally had were answered through reading discussions of others with similar questions. Everything from WHICH GLUE??? (my favorites) to tips on bending wood. Of all of the research I did, I never could have guessed one of the toughest parts of this project was sifting through millions of drawer pull options.

This is built from locally sourced white ash and eastern black walnut.

Very nice…like the slick design. Reminds me of a Herman Miller piece

Thank you, everyone. A lot of work went into this as I’m sure you’re all familiar. Both in and out of my one car garage woodshop. All of the conversations my wife had with a shell of me while I was lost in thoughts about making this a reality.. haha

Mighty fine piece there, great work, especially enjoy the rounded appeal!
