Once again, the drawer is 12” deep and 42” wide. But it is what the customer wanted. The entire piece is 42” tall, 46” wide and 20” deep. In the cabinet below is an adjustable shelf. It is made entirely of Beetle Kill pine. Since the red spots are much harder to come by, I always try to feature them somehow. the upper right hand corner of the drawer front is the spot. Once again, finished with 2 coats of shellac and 5 coats of water based poly.

Thanks for reading and comments are always welcome.

Beautiful piece Monte. Nice work. I notice the top looks much darker than the front. Is that just the angle?

Very nice Monte. Sure is odd on the drawer depth though. Could almost fit a body in there.

Really nice, Monte. I’m sure your customers will be ecstatic.
I wonder just how many pairs of jeans the guy has. All of mine plus all my tee shirts would fit in that top drawer.

Looks good, Monte. You might not like the oversized drawers, but I could see them being useful for certain items.

Nice, very nice. I like that natural edge on the front, very nice touch.

Candy may be onto something with the “throw everything in the drawer, company’s coming” thing. I’m really liking that finish. The ‘hidden’ live edge is a nice surprise like Bowtie said.

You still using the regular shellac not the Seal Coat? Not supposed to be able to finish over that but yours looks like it’s working fine.
