The carcass is Ash and the drawer boxes are Walnut.
It was quite a challenge to book-match the drawer fronts, but I’m happy how it came out.
Drawer fronts have a rare earth magnet imbedded.
Keys are still in the works that will also have a magnet imbedded to open the drawers.
Thanks for looking.

Wow… great job on the bookmatched drawer fronts. I really like the two different sizes on the drawers. Very striking piece. Nicely done!

Stunning! Love the modern white and walnut making music together.

Big fan of walnut and clean modern design. This piece is really sharp looking and well proportioned. I think the off set kerf in the drawers really adds a nice detail.

Let me echo what everyone is saying…....very attractive piece.
Those deeply inset drawer fronts are a winner!
Might you have any plans to share. I would love to copying this design.
Well done.

Wow! Even walnut interior (drawers). It’s hard to make inset look really sharp, but you did it! unsure what you mean by the magnets, but keep us updated!

Great looking dresser!

I am not sue what you mean by magnets to open the drawers. Can you provide more details.
