Hand Carved Drawer Handles
We started out by cutting two pieces of wood, one the basic shape of the handle, and one the basic shape of the decorative fruit. Stacked on top of each other, you can get an idea of how the handle will turn out. We now need to carve and contour the cut out shapes.
While the 'fruit' has yet to be permanently connected to the handle, you can see that the project has really turned out pretty well! it still needs to be stained, but we are going to wait until the rest of the dresser has been stripped, repaired and sanded. That way we can stain the entire piece at once. I will be sure to post more pictures so you can all see the progress.
