This Piece Has Personality!
January 28, 2016
Needing to fill a smaller space with storage for office items, I selected this solid walnut wood/burl veneer chest of drawers. It is desktop high. The small drawers are perfect for corralling pen refills, highlighters and the like and the drawers are the right height for holding a ream of computer paper, a box of file folders and the like. The workmanship is very fine, featuring a lustrous finish and a definite burl wood veneer. Styling is just a bit 'quirky', with English Country House overtones and the simple locking door in the center of the top range of drawers. Considerable care has been taken in finishing to create golden brown highlights along the 'tubed' drawer trimming. The reeded and angled front corners of the frame look very fine and help to set this piece apart from 'run of the mill' casework.
Shipping is expensive but the item arrived wrapped and taped to make damage all but impossible. The piece is in pristine condition. Delivery included set up in the room and place of my choice but did not include a final polish. I did that as a first step in enjoying this heirloom quality chest.
