My love of Australian Colonial Antique furniture was the inspiration for this piece. I wanted to test my skills at making a piece to the high standards of cabinetmakers of the past. With this cabinet I did not wish to copy an original piece by piece. Instead I drew a number of elements from photos of originals I have in books in my library.

I used all the original joinery techniques including hand cut dovetails to the carcass and drawer, panelled back, hand turned columns and feet. Old timber moulding planes were used to mould the ogee shaped front to the drawer and all the carvings were done by hand. The French Polish was also finished in the traditional way.
