As one drawer closes, another opens!

Happy New Year!

As we start 2018, I have photographed a Georgian Mahogany Chest of Drawers, which has just come into my workshop, and is for sale. Little restoration is needed, as can be seen by the photographs taken whilst drizzling, better ones soon!

Measuring approximately 38 1/2″ wide, 19 1/2″ deep and 31 3/4″ tall the chest is awaiting a few bits of veneer to be replaced, some of which are in the drawers, a very good revive of the polish before waxing, then me to cut keys for the locks, and  although many people never use them, I think it’s always nice see and it can be quite satisfying to cut nice keys.

All the best for 2018, and I look forward to our events starting in March, where this chest will be on show, unless sold before!P1040744


One of the lower drawer handles after a quick tidy, looks like I’ll enjoy this project, and maybe for sale earlier than I originally thought, please let me know if this interests you.

Regards, Andy.
