Designed in 2016
This piece was designed for a private client. The chest is built of solid walnut joined with dovetails and solid brass hardware. The case is joined with graduated dovetails and the floor is tongue and groove planks. The style was meant to be monolithic: a large box, heavy, and built to last. The cutaways that expose the feet are simple, but gracious, and soften the hard corners of the box. One indulgence was the use of gold leaf in the interior of the lid.
