Gabe and I always marvel at how well-made wood furniture used to be. Whenever we find dressers, armoires, and cabinets in secondhand shops, they’re sturdy, refined, and stylish--even the knobs and pulls are stunning. I set out to craft a new piece that has old-fashioned workmanship and style: our Constellation Chest.
It’s made of plantation-grown mahogany, sits on tall, tapered legs, and its front has an unusual scoop shape. The drawer faces are fluted for textural delight, and the antique brass pulls are the true stars. An aged cream-color finish tops it all off.
