Massachusetts_low_chest_front_left_oblique_view.jpgLeft oblique view109 viewsThis is a western Massachusetts low chest, more plain and primitive than a Boston-made version. I used Moser's Honey Amber Maple waterborne aniline dye to get the color of aged maple. I applied a single coat of gloss wiping varnish after applying the dye. Next, I applied five coats of one-pound cut amber shellac. I then carefully applied and scrubbed away with mineral spirits a dark glaze in the fillets, corners, etc. to accentuate the moulding details. Last a sixth coat of one-pound cut amber shellac.Sgt42RHRNov 12, 2016
Massachusetts_low_chest1.jpgRight oblique view94 viewsOne of the features of using tiger maple is that as the eye moves around the piece, the grain changes shape and color. The grain on the right side is particularly striking.Sgt42RHRNov 12, 2016
Massachusetts_low_chest_dovetails1.jpgDovetailed drawers85 viewsI made the four drawers when I got home from the class. I used dividers to maintain the same spacing ratio on each of the drawers, even though the number of tails changed with each drawer.Sgt42RHRNov 12, 2016
Massachusetts_low_chest_back_view.jpgBacking boards79 viewsAll secondary wood in this piece is poplar. The backing boards have one coat of one-pound cut amber shellac on them. I was surprised that a couple of the boards were almost brown, unusual for poplar.Sgt42RHRNov 12, 2016
