Stickley #913 Harvey Ellis Dresser, Quick update

Sunday I didn't have alot of time in the shop but there was something I wanted to do. I finish sanded each of the small drawers inside and out. I hand sanded the drawer fronts to 220 grit. I marked the center of the drawers and drilled a hole for the 2 inch cherry pulls.
Once the pulls were installed I applied a coat of Danish oil on the drawer fronts. The oil turned the cherry knobs the same tone as the carcass and really brought out the curl in the maple. I liked the look so much that I had to take some pictures and make a quick update. So click on the pictures on the left for a larger version.
Hope you have a nice week.

The grain match from drawere to drawer turned out great. Look forward to seeing the bottom three drawers.
