Wow out of the blue comes an interesting and attractive project!
How was making the pull details let alone how they were made??

the pull was really fun to make. and pretty straight forward.

the inlay is a bunch of edge glued triangles cut to the ovoid shape. a plywood template was used to rout out a spot for them in the door and drawers. the routing for the drawers was done with the drawers in place (in the cabinet). and then the inlay was fit, separated and glued in.

the rib is a bent lamination that was previously hot piped to shape. it was then doweled to the door/drawers over top of the inlay joint.

this was definitely the fun part of this project. it had a few high pucker factor moments, but all ended well.
