Hi Big Al,
A beautiful chest of drawers. Love the taper on the drawer fronts and the contrast with the surround. How did you construct the drawers and did you use bearing or traditional wooden drawer runners?

Thanks Steven, I made drawers boxes and then screwed on the fronts, The boxes were made from tulipwood/poplar and joined together using through dovetails. I grooved the sides of the boxes to take wooden runners, and the drawer front stops the drawers.

Al a very nice set of draws I also like the way you have tapered the top in and used contrasting wood for the draw fronts and the frame. Did you use conventional jointing or go with Biscuits or Dominoes for the carcase

Thanks guy's, I used biscuits to join the cherry to the ash, and used housing joints for the carcass.
The chest also tapers back at the front.
The inspiration for the chest came from the Egyptian inspired dresser that sparky made a few years ago. I had a quick look on the Internet and took inspiration from a few different chest's. I may make a wardrobe to match, but not for a while.
