Massachusetts_low_chest_front_left_oblique_view.jpg
Massachusetts_low_chest_front_left_oblique_view.jpgLeft oblique view105 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 view89 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 drawers81 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.jpg
Massachusetts_low_chest_back_view.jpgBacking boards74 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
Massachusetts_low_chest_drawer_pull_hardware.jpg
Massachusetts_low_chest_drawer_pull_hardware.jpgDrawer pulls71 viewsAll hardware was bright brass from Ball & Ball. I painted it all with gun bluing which turned it black, then I steel wooled and polished with Simichrome polish which left patina in the deep recesses and hard to reach spots. In this view, one can also see the effect of the dark glaze applied in the fillet of the thumbnail moulding around the drawers.Sgt42RHRNov 12, 2016
Virginia_corner_cabinet1.jpg
Virginia_corner_cabinet1.jpgEastern shore of Virginia corner cabinet157 viewsI began this two years ago in a class with Lonnie Bird at the Lonnie Bird School of Fine Woodworking, and just got back to finishing it up. While most Eastern shore of Virginia corner cabinets were painted pine, a few were made in walnut. These were typically build by finish carpenters rather than joiners. These carpenters used elements they were familiar with in building homes in the Eastern shore. Glazed doors, arched top doors, raised panel doors, strong bases, fluted pilasters, set-back capitals, etSgt42RHRNov 07, 2016

waist_moulding_and_flutes.jpgWaist moulding and flutes113 viewsThe fluted pilasters in this piece are frequent details in Eastern shore of Virginia corner cabinets. The curve of each flute is reversed at the bottom which adds interest and helps direct the eye upward to the set-back capital and cornice.Sgt42RHRNov 07, 2016
