my wife and I shopped around for furniture and couldn’t find what we wanted so I decided to try and build a bedroom set…these are the 2 dressers I have made and the bed is coming

Very nice. Making your own is the only way to go. Looking forward to seeing the bed.

yea i just looked at a couple different styles on the internet and then picked what i liked and put it together

I accidently found the figured walnut I bought a bunch of 8/4 lumber and it was in there and it worked out perfect so I could have matching tops on both of my dressers
