Oxbow Bureau

Walnut bureau with oxbow shape and ogee bracket feet

On a trip through Pennsylvania, we decided to stop at Irion Lumber to purchase some select lumber. I had a bureau in mind to build which I saw pictured in "Connecticut Valley Furniture." The bureau, built by Eliphalet Chapin, was striking in its proportions, contour, moldings, and ogee bracket feet. Here are pictures of that bureau finished and being built from the beautiful Walnut I purchased at Irion.
