Low Boy

Another solid black walnut low boy. This one has purple heart drawer fronts and “accent” strip on the top, turned drop spindles, and hand carved (with a little help from a rotary tool) ball and claw legs.

Beautiful! Purple Heart and Walnut? Hmmmm. Who’d a thunk it would look so good?

Beautiful work. You have got the low boys down, well made. Do you worry about the Purple Heart turning brown? I love the carvings on the feet, even if they were machine made, they are the best part I believe.

The feet were hand made I just got a little help from my trusty dremmel tool for sanding. And as for the purple heart I’ve had no issues with it Browning. It has gotten darker and deeper purple but that’s it.

Very nice work ,it takes some time to get the legs just right,beautiful.
