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.Sgt42RHR

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.Sgt42RHR

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.Sgt42RHR
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.Sgt42RHR
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.Sgt42RHR
