Chest of drawers

Made from pear, walnut and maple, this chest of drawers sounds good enough to eat. It might be a bit chewy though, so about keeping your clothes in it instead?

The drawer bottoms are made from American walnut. Each complete bottom comes from a single section of timber; hence the grain pattern runs across from left to right.

Using dowels rather than dovetails on the drawers helps keep the piece contemporary and stylish.

Materials: Steamed pear, American walnut, maple.

Dimensions: 1130mm (h) x 680mm (w) x 450mm (d)
