Student Work–Dennis Garmer

I’m a novice in woodworking and this dressing table was my first attempt at a quality period reproduction.  The project included many firsts: shell carving, band sawing and shaping cabriole legs, turning pad feet, mortising drawer runners, card scraping, working with curly maple, and using water based dye to mention a few!  While the piece was intimidating for me, patience, attention to detail paid off and I’m proud of the results. ~ Dennis Garmer
