Six Drawer Shaker Chest

Christopher Stein submitted to us a wonderful project finished with both the Tried & True Danish Oil and our Varnish Oil. This six drawer wooden chest is made from solid cherry, styled in the traditional “Shaker” fashion. With all hand-cut dovetails, telescoping wood frames, and a solid frame and back panel, Christopher displays excellent craftsmanship. To top off the great handiwork, he chose to use a finish that would highlight the beauty of the wood.


The Danish Oil darkens the wood slightly but helps to make the grains pop by deepening the contrast. When the Varnish Oil is applied over top of the Danish Oil, the project gets the added benefit of excellent scratch and abrasion resistance and will keep the chest looking amazing for many years to come. Great job Christopher!
