    Highboy

    I do mostly lathe work now but occasionally do other types of woodwork. This highboy has been "in progress" in my shop for way too long. Now it is waiting for the finish to cure before being moved into the house. Too many hand-cut dovetails to count. I will replace the knobs on central drawers with something that matches better. Plenty of mistakes but it is done!

    Wow i agree with Allen. You done yourself proud there Dennis.

    Did you make everything. There is great detail to the unit.

    Legs, top carving and more.

    Any chance you got more pics and some of the draws and build.

    Just being greedy. One is just enough to wet the appetite.

    Thanks for sharing it.
    cheers

    Nice piece! A lot of time put into it, but well worth it in the end. Is it a commission piece or a future family heirloom?

    Wow....that's an accomplishment! Very nice, but way too few pics for such a substantial piece!
