This piece is based on a Seymour Corner Washstand from the federal period, like this. I stayed fairly true to the design as you'll see but decided to do turned legs in order to learn reeding and to practice carving. I also got plenty of stressful practice in turning pommels (the transition in a turning from square to round). Other skills learned in this project include bricking, flush-cutting on the shaper, altering a shaper knife, cutting tenons on curved rails, making a lumber core, veneering, making a curved-front drawer, cockbeading around the drawer, and using a glaze for a mild darkening of the mahogany. Plenty of old lessons were reinforced along the way through that ubiquitous teacher, Mr. Mistakenator, who tends to show up when you think you've got something all figured out. Flaws and all, however, I feel good about this project. I made a greater effort to document the process so there are plenty of photos to check out below. There are some holes in my documentation though so please feel free to comment with any questions you have.
