Design and finish are of course really important. However the way the natural wood is celebrated makes a real difference too. It adds to the overall look and feel of the piece. Steve is always careful to showcase the distinctive features of the wood that he’s working with. This is what makes a great set of handmade drawers. It gives you something that is not only unique but extra special too.
This stunning chest of handmade drawers by Steve embrace the beauty of English ash. Here you can see how the wonderful grain is highlighted as a feature. The wood has been selected so that the grain runs across the top and down the sides of the chest. You can also see the play of colour through the front of the drawers. When you pull the drawers out you’ll see this same level of detail shown in the sides of the drawers too.
Drawers are believed to have been first invented in the mid 17th century. This is when simple chests containing small tills or boxes were used. Later on these chests contained multiple drawer boxes with doors that enclosed the drawers themselves. It wasn’t until the late 17th century that the classic rectangular piece of furniture with its open front and multiple drawers came into being. This is the chest of drawers style that we know and love today.
