Black walnut chest on frame with cabriole legs. Black walnut from local black walnut tree locally milled and dried in my shop. Legs fastened to side aprons by floating mortise and tenon joints (Festool Domino). All drawer sides made with Pecan wood joined to the walnut fronts with rabbeted half blind dovetails. Plans and dimensions came from a picture in a magazine.

Nicely done, really like the slipper feet.

Horton Brasses for the hardware?

theoldfart – Yes, the brass is from Horton Brass
woodchuckerNJ – Sorry about the horizontal photos. There does not seem to be a solution to this set of photos.

Thank you all for your kind comments. Good to know there are a number of people that still appreciate “old school” efforts.
