    That’s the definition of “clean lines” – beautiful piece of work. I love the grain matched drawer front.

    Incredible. I wonder how you get such crisp lines and smooth surface. Recently I started my first “serious” project – simple oak bed and I’m constantly strugling with grain. Even with freshly sharpen plane i can not get smooth surface and “continous” shavings.
    May this be caused by oak material? Or am I so bad at reading grains 😉 ?
    I harvested it myself from fallen oak tree, it is sun and wind dried, something about 15-20% moisture (I think I can not reach anything better with an outdoor drying)

    The front stile grain pattern is carried over on to the drawer front and even onto
    the drawer pull. That is a very interesting and eye-catching design element and so is the almost extreme taper of the legs. I suppose that using solid legs in the design was not possible and you had to use the less appealing (to me) 2-piece design to match up with the overall design concept. It is still a very nice piece of furniture and would not be too difficult for the neophyte to build.
