Old Drawers

I acquired a number of old drawers from a photography studio that was closing down and selling of stock used as props and storage.The drawers were missing the original carcass .The piece of furniture would have been called a Wellington chest or plan chest,probably used for storing drawings or plans for buildings or land. I did some research on the style and design of such furniture and decided to rebuild the carcass in the style of what might of once been.Reclaimed yellow pine was used as this is the timber the drawers are made from and an exact colour match could be achieved.Built in a traditional frame and panel construction and finished with shellac and handmade wax polish.Picture 141 Picture 142 Picture 145 Picture 146 Picture 148 Picture 147
