I've just joined the group so thought I'd post something but not sure what's expected. I used to be a furniture restorer for 35 years but retired 4 years ago and built a small workshop in the back garden so I could make things for myself. I kept quite a lot of old wood and some machines but due to lack of space had to get rid of too much. I made this chest in the Arts and Crafts style using only reclaimed oak, mainly from wardrobes, chest of drawers, pews and table tops. Traditional construction methods, with some modification, stained with bichromate and a shellac finish.
