New Customer Project by Mark Dutton

This door chest was made by Mark Dutton and was featured in the gallery of the June2005 Fine Woodworking magazine. The wood is air-dried walnut from a tree that was cut to make
room for a public library expansion in Mark’s hometown of Warsaw, NY. The inspiration came from a factory
visit to the Stickley Furniture plant in Manlius, NY and a long search for the
perfect hardware to suit our mission-style furnishings. The drawer
fronts are from consecutive boards in the log. The balance of the
eight-foot boards will be used for drawer fronts on a matching tall dresser,
continuing the grain pattern.
