I made this out of some of the cherry that my woodworking buddies and I had cut down, milled and then we air dryed it for one year. It was quite an expierence. We paid a sawyer to cut it down and mill it into 4/4 stock. We air dryed it ourselves. We put a lot of “sweat” equity into that wood. We ended up with about 1400 bd. feet.
I made the valet from plans I got out of Wood magazine. I followed the plans pretty closely with a couple of exceptions. Instead of vinyl fabric for inside the drawer and the top tray I used Suede Tex from Rockler’s and instead of a brass knob for the drawer I turned the knob from some of the Cherry.
Now if I can find the time to make an entertainment center from more of that wood…..
