Rather than use very large pieces of wood to achieve the drawer front curves, which would be very wasteful, we build on the 18th-century technique of veneering, with our own workshop cut veneers. We add to this the 20th century technique of laminating. We use vertical bands of veneer to achieve/gain texture. The top band of each drawer we sculpt into a flared propeller edge which allows us to create the handle and give a second curve. Two curves for the price of one.
We offer two versions:
- 4 drawers
- 5 drawers
All version are available with or without pyramidalized sides in the online shop.
Made for you
This piece has been chosen because we love them and have proven to be irrepressibly popular and you’ve demanded we make them again and hopefully again and again. They are not faits accomplis, or written in tablets of stone, their dimensions, materials and finishes, can be tweaked. This may begin to nudge them towards, or indeed run headlong into, our Slow Furniture-Making Society and the price differences that will entail. All will be agreed before the onset of construction.
