Hello everyone.

I just completed a new dresser for a client. This model is called “Spanky,” after the adorable member of the Little Rascals. Hope you enjoy!

I’ll probably have some templates and instructions for this dresser (and others) available soon.

Thanks for looking!

Wow, I bet any kid would love to have a bedroom full of furniture with this whimsical design theme. Have you designed the bed, study desk, etc. that would go with it?

I have enough trouble with straight pieces. I love this style as it almost brings the furniture to life.

Thanks so much everyone.

Hal – No designs for those pieces yet. We’ll see what the clients want and go from there.

This was a lot of fun…especially getting a break from building chairs non-stop for a dozen years. I wanted something new and although I don’t normally do things like this, I really enjoyed the challenge when I got the request from the client. Heck – I might build a lot more of them!
