Throughout the process of laying out and actually constructing this rather large breakfront library case I have tried to stay true to George Hepplewhites original design. This has required a bit of compromise.
I chose to eliminate the overlaid condition in the base section, making doors and drawers both inset. Aligning the panel mould applied to the doors with the drawers above increased the width of the satinwood border around the drawer fronts. Hopefully this compromise is worth making while trying to respect the sanctity of the architects design.
