I built this set for my mother and father for christmas but now its for two christmas’s.
I went to the local lumber yard looking some wood to put some color in this piece and they said we have some cherry but only one piece, so after looking at it knew it was not cherry but being i was not sure ether but it had color. today I went back to the yard and I was telling the manager about it and he said that is who got my purple heart.

Nice dressers, when I first saw it I thought the drawers were octagon shaped, the purple heart on them gives them a very interesting effect.

I go along with OttoH. I too first thought, “HMMM octagon interesting touch”. Then being slow that I am I thought what are the other pic’s of. Then I saw the purple heart, beautiful work! Your parents I’ll bet love it.

When are you going to start the rest of the bed room furniture? Four poster bed, 2 night stands, a highboy chest of draws, Armoire! Shall I go on? Again Beautiful!!
