Meet the Douglas. The cornerstone of the Bedrock Collection, and the first piece I can say is completely my own design. I was going for a mid century look with some queen anne and maloof influences. The base is made in a mid century way but the feet have an ogee foot grace to them. The drawers are one continuous board starting at the top left moving to the bottom right. I used Blum blu motion glides because wooden glides don’t cut it when it comes to dressers. There is a mirror that goes with it but I don’t have it finished yet. Finished with 4 coats of Maloof oil and 1 coat of orange wax.

It’s beautiful!

I like the look of the dresser on the base—the contrast of the rectilinear dresser and the curvy base. And of course, that walnut is gorgeous!

I like the offset designed top, wonder why you went longer on the right?

Very nice.

You can’t beat Walnut for color variety !
Got to be a reason for the right side overhang. Can you share it with us ?

Beautiful, great grain across the drawers. This is going to make someone happy to own it.

Nice job! I love the use of figure and color. Nice “out of the box” thinking in the design.

The overhang is for a vase I will inset in the top. I just didn’t have enough time to finish the mirror or turn the vase. After I get the whole thing stuck together Ill update the post.

Nice job all around! Even at my own basic level of understanding, I can really see all three styles in this piece. Well done!

Lovely stuff!
Like the base a lot. I see a direct line of thought from you earlier cabinets.
Hope to see more of this kind of work from you

Excellent job. I think your inset vase idea will make it even more interesting to look at.
