Lingerie Chest by Mike Rosenberg

LINGERIE CHEST
Mike Rosenberg,
Tecumseh, Michigan
Red oak, poplar, plain sliced red oak plywood, Polyshades Bombay Mahogany

“The piece is one of a five-piece bedroom set I built for my wife. The canted corners were made by ripping the plywood and face frame at 22.5 degrees and then finishing the joint with a chamfered router bit. The drawers are joined with box joints.
The first attempt at the finish turned out awful. I tried to put it on too thick. After stripping and reapplying several thin coats I was able to get the look I was after.”
