When I feel that restoring isn't really exciting me all that much, I'll decide to start from scratch, and see what I can come up with. I've had this full set of GUCCI hardware in a box in my shop for a few years now and using those pieces as the main design element(s) gave me the inspiration to build this one. The drawbolts are really very HEAVY pieces of polished brass and the lock too, reminds me of jewelry. Add all brass binding and then it started looking very European. I love using gray in design so why not here too.
