General Features – Chippendale Chest of Drawers
- Timber is sourced from government controlled, sustainable plantations.

- Use of panelling gives a wonderfully decorative and stylish appearance but is also an excellent cabinet making practice.

- Final preparation – hand polished with beeswax (unless a painted finish is chosen) and buffed to bring out the depth and richness of the grain.

Each piece of mahogany furniture that is made to order is constructed by hand for you. It is then hand sanded and finished in the colour of your choice. It is unique to you, in other words no other piece of furniture exists that is exactly the same.
Of course this does mean it takes time to make our furniture and our lead times are longer than mass produced, machine made furniture – however we believe it is well worth the wait!
