Rococo chest of drawers

The “Rococo chest of drawers” was completed in 2009. The project was conceived according to my personal interpretation of the Portuguese style “Dom Jose I” (Baroque/Rococo styles). It was entirely made of old growth Rio-Rosewood (Dalbergia Nigra) salvaged from a demolished rural larder. The available pieces were quite irregular in shape and size (some like scraps). The finishing was done with a personally prepared wax. The bronze drawer handles have been remodeled by me. Only hand tools were used, except for the large board sawing.

Dimensions: 35” high x 31” wide x 30” deep
