3 Drawer, hand carved Ivy chest... by back2root
3 Drawer, hand carved Ivy chest...
I started this piece almost 10years ago... It has survived 3 house moves, a flood and 2 different studios! It is now finally complete and living in its new home 4,548miles away from where the project was born!

This chest was the third attempt I had made at this idea, and is closest to the original concept that I had had all those years ago. Every single leaf is hand carved out of Tulip wood. By the time the drawers where complete there was well over 250 hand carved leaves. The root's and braches are all carved out of reclaimed Mahogany. The whole branch system is made up of around 20 separate carvings - I did this to conserve wood and give me the freedom to really wrap the branches around the chest.

I am happy with the final result, but I'm still thinking about having one more go at it - there are just a few details I'd love to take another shot at.
