This Highboy or High Chest of drawers is made based on a few different antique examples made in Newport Rhode Island by John Townsend in the 18th century.  This Chippendale Highboy is made from premium solid walnut, and will have curly/tiger walnut drawer fronts.  The cabriole legs end with hand-carved ball and claw foot.  The center shell is hand carved into the front apron. The shell is based on an original carving on a Highboy in the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and Yale University Art Gallery. The Drawers are made with hand cut dovetail joinery and are constructed of  solid quarter sawn poplar, the drawer bottoms are made of one wide piece of solid poplar.
