Quarter-Sawn-Red-Oak-Safe-DrawerThe idea for the drawer comes from the 18th C German cabinetmakers Abraham & David Roentgen pieces for Catherine the Great and the 18C English furniture designer Thomas Sheraton’s drawing book. The transformation furniture made by the 18 C French cabinetmaker Jean-Francois Oben is also an important influence on my work.
