Dr. White’s Chest

$11,500.00 - $13,800.00

So named for the customer who first commissioned it over thirty years ago, the Dr. White’s Chest has been built for many homes since. A combination of dovetail, miter, rabbet, lap and butt joints – crafted in sustainably harvested Allegheny Plateau cherry or North American walnut – makes this the most demanding single piece of cabinetry we offer. With seven drawers and two cupboards with adjustable shelves, and a secret compartment for storing valuables, the Dr. White’s Chest can store a full wardrobe of clothes and sweaters.

Downloads Product Sheet


Framed by four integral legs that ascend to its broad top of matched-grain hardwood, the Dr. White’s Chest offers a sense of solidity and stability. The chest’s Shaker-inspired design is exceedingly utilitarian, with drawers that slide with ease on handmade slides for a lifetime of use, without any mechanical assistance. The construction maximizes available storage space, each housing nests within the hand-finished frame.

The Dr. White’s Chest also integrates a pair of cupboard doors that conceal adjustable shelves, and a much-lauded secret compartment designed to contain and protect valuables.

Despite its simple, linear structure, the chest incorporates a veritable history of fine joinery. Employing five distinctive joints, the time required to craft the Dr. White’s Chest is rewarded with a work of historical art.
