Stilted Chest

Wood Chest

Created by Tracy Fiegl
"Stilted Chest" was inspired by a box on a table. The case portion is about eight inches wide by ten inches high, and holds three small graduated drawers. The drawer fronts measure (from the top down) 2-1/2. 3-1/2, and 4-1/2 inches tall. The case is veneered in curly English sycamore (maple). The drawer fronts are attached with hand cut dovetails. The base is mahogany whose color was enhanced with a reddish stain, echoed in lathe-turned mahogany drawer pulls.
