Craftsman Buffet

Craftsman style buffet, made from recycled lumber.

 Hardware detail.  Copper alloy pulls.  What I like about them is that they're size-appropriate for the piece. and they aren't the standard pulls found on most other Craftsman furniture. 
Dovetail drawer detail.  Drawer fronts made from 8x8 porch post from an 80 year old house.  Sides are made from sustainable poplar.  Note the dado in the side which is an original style of drawer slide.  Has wooden runners in the case.

Top view of buffet.  Made from recycled door stiles, from doors that were solid (not veneered).

8x8 post used for drawer fronts. This lumber generally ends up in a landfill.  It is labor-intensive to reclaim, but I feel it's worth it.
