That a great set of draws you have made Andrew. Nice dovetails and the square pegs at the joins nice touch. I also like the finish what is it

I agree with you Derek. Andrew has done a cracking job and I'm not surprised it took that long to make either!
Well done mate look forward to the next project

|I've got a pine chest of drawers to make soon and I'll be happy if my drawers end up looking even half as good as that! Excellent work!|

Hi guys, thanks for all your comments.
Abour the finish:
Grain filler used: Plaster of paris mixed wit ronseal wallnut spirit dye and dannish oil (purely experimental). Used a old credit card to apply evenly and sanded down to 240 grit. I took extra efforts for the top and the draw fronts.
Oil coat: multiple coats of Liberon finishing oil, sanded inbetween with 600, 1000 and 1200 grit wet and dry sandpaper.
Final coat: wax polish and buffed it to a high gloss finish.
For the draws I used maple to contrast it with the oak.
