Mackintosh 4 Drawer Chest #824
48"W x 22"D x 36"H
THIS PIECE WAS ORIGINALLY DESIGNED TO SERVE AS A CHANGING TABLE TO MATCH OUR QUARTERSAWN OAK MACKINTOSH CRIB.
WE CAN SUPPLY A CHANGING TRAY THAT FITS A STANDARD CHANGING PAD. THIS WOULD SIT ON TOP OF THE DRESSER UNTIL IT WAS NO LONGER NEEDED.
THIS THEN BECOMES A FINE STARTER DRESSER FOR A CHILD
THIS PIECE WOULD ALSO MAKE A FINE LINEN STORAGE PIECE FOR A DINING ROOM.
Hand cut paneled sides. FULL dust panels for strength. Side hung, Center guided, Dovetailed drawers glide smooth as silk on their wooden runners. 5/4" thick top...MASSIVE throughout, these pieces weigh nearly 400 lbs!!!
Case pieces are a thorough test of our talent. Never a production piece, each one develops a "personality" in the shop. The drawers and case are numbered, and the piece is signed and given a shop # for future reference. We keep full notes on the construction and finish.
The drawers are center guided and side hung on handmade, hardwood glides and slides. 5/4" lumber is used on the case and top, and the side paneling is resawn and matched from thicker boards. Traditional mortise and tenon construction. The dust panels are dovetailed into the legs. The drawers are dovetailed construction.
FULL dust panels and reinforced at all stress points. The case is battleship strong. The piston fit of the drawers rewards with a satisfying "woosh" of air as the drawers are opened and closed. The case is sealed and the air enters and exits at the top in back....no drawing floor dust into the case onto your clothes !!
I could go on and on. Our case pieces are our finest work. Long hours are spent assembling and fitting each and every component. Prior to that, every detail is considered.
