Project Information

In August, just 1 week before I had to start teaching again, after having a 2 and 1/2 month break my wife asked me to build her a dresser for Christmas. She wanted it to match the other furniture in the bedroom. It is made out of knotty pine, and the edge treatments match another dresser. The Inlay came from leftover material when I built her headboard.

A perfect example of how beautiful pine can be. And the inlay makes the piece so elegant. Beautiful work roundabout. Thanks for showing it to us.

Debbie, it's like having an aircraft carrier in the bedroom. But that was her one requirement, "I want enough drawer space to hold ALL my clothes."

Thank you everyone for your comments

RoundAbout,

I don't think there's enough dressers in the world to hold women's clothes. That's why they invented closets. I do like your dresser though.

I got a "you should build sweetie a dollhouse" in early December. I reminded her that my grandfather was still working on my sisters on Christmas morning (but it's still great). She had better decide such things in January!

you could have built a smaller one, and handed her a box of trashbags to donate some stuff…. Yeah right… build the BIG dresser and sleep better.

My payment is that I get to keep woodworking, and on occasions get to buy a new tool (Honey, I would love to build you that but I need a <inser name="true"> to do it.) As long as I get her projects done she'll let me do others.

I've made a few projects with knotty pine and have always enjoyed working with it.
