This stunning chest of draws has been created from a variety of English Timbers (Yew, Oak, Ash, Lime, London Plain, Chestnut, Cherry, Beech, Sycamore) all sourced from less then five miles from my workshop in West Chiltington, the only draw not to come from Sussex is the smallest draw which is Bog Oak from the Fens in Cambridgeshire where I sourced the trees straight from the farm!
I have used a technique called Kerfing to create the bends in the top. Each draw has been fitted with soft close draw runners for smooth opening and closing, the base of the draws are made from Cedar of Lebanon because it naturally repels clothes moths and wood boring insects. Each draw is made from solid oak which has been carefully dove tailed together. The Chest in the photos is 1630mm Wide 910mm High and 590mm deep. But these draws can be made in any dimension.
