Re: Wood selection for Period drawer fronts

Hence, huh. You can hence all you want, but if you don't know what you are talking about it is mere sophistry.

Get yourself a highly figure board like the one you show in the upper left of the Chester County chest. Plane the board from rough. For extra insight use wooden single iron planes. Make a lipped drawer with an ovolo moulding all around with a nice moulding plane. And make some halfblind dovetails and a groove and then get back to us.
