Tiger Maple Secretary

This tiger maple secretary has influences from the Chippendale period, as well as strong Hepplewhite design influences of the Federal era.  It was designed and built by Stephen H. Smith, Cabinetmaker, a New England furniture maker out west in Anadarko, OK.  It features the fancy bail open pulls.  I like using the open pulls on Tiger maple pieces because they allow more of the grain to “speak”. I always use hardware from Horton Brasses because it is so authentic to the New England Furniture that I love to copy.Stephen Smith
