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.
