Cascade Lingerie Chest

Curly maple, quartered cherry, purpleheart, wenge;
20"l x 20"w x 66"h

This is my playful take on the traditional semainier form; the collapsing checkerboard looks like someone closed the drawers too hard. The piece’s whimsy belies careful and robust construction: the case is joined with hidden spline miters, the drawers are hand-dovetailed, and the base is mortise and tenoned. It will be many generations before this chest cascades apart.
