Concord Tall Chest

This is the second piece inspired by David’s visit to the Canterbury Shaker village close to Concord, New Hampshire. Based on an original shaker design and made from finest American Cherry this piece celebrates the Shakers obsession for detail and craftsmanship featuring 196 hand cut dovetails joints on show in both carcase and draw construction. Consecutive boards of cherry were carefully selected for the draw fronts to ensure a harmonious and uninterrupted look and each draw is finished with a hand turned shaker style draw pull. Western red cedar was used for internal draw bottoms as well as the hidden dust panels and the frame and panel back. Despite these features rarely being seeing, the Shakers believed that regardless of show, everything should be made as beautifully as possible, an ethos embraced by Four Limes Design.
