Now that the New Designers Exhibition and the New Forest Show are finished and the Chief’s Chair has had a good outing, I have been able to get on with a new project. This one is a small set of drawers, featuring curved sides, with grooves cut in. So far I have made a former and laminated the curved sides, also fitting in cherry stringing. The piece is predominantly of walnut, but there will be contrasting cherry inside the grooves on the side panels and cherry handles on the drawers. This project was a late addition to my plans, as I was unable to quickly obtain the necessary timber for a bureau I have designed and which I now intend to make after the drawers.
