Beautiful chest – I really like the contrasts of woods, the design and craftsmanship. Nice work.

I’m not normally a fan of Mission furniture, but I really like this piece. The contrasting woods are beautiful!

Great work. They have a similar piece in his Stickley furniture drawings. It is great to see it realized in wood. I want to make one of these some day.

The one I have seen has clothes hanging capacity.

Welcome to L.J. Looking forward to more posts.
