Oh wow Larry. One beautiful work and perfectly executed. I have been hesitant to put those drawer gliders in my projects but I am convinced I need to change my mind. One beautiful bed room to come to rest in with all those other beauties you have put in there.

More great work from my buddy Pottz! Your drawers are so nice and built to last and last with those half blind dovetails and I really like the floating look.

Potts, what a great design. I like the floating look. It is special when you make a great piece that will fit just right in just one spot. This is a perfect look in a perfect location. Congratulations.

That’s a beautiful piece, Larry! What makes it a standout to my eye are the deep roundovers that you put on the frame after assembling it. They give it a real custom look — reminiscent of a Maloof design.
