Before my oldest daughter was born I decided to build her a dresser. I wanted it to be something that was beautiful and could not be found at a store. I knew I wanted to use maple and cherry for contrast. That decision began a family tradition. This was the first project that I took on. I built the whole thing in my backyard, which at the time was about 15’ x 10’. For this dresser I created the drawer fronts by gluing a solid strip of cherry in between two solid pieces of maple. The two pieces of maple were cut from the same board. So, if you look at the grain it lines up above and below the cherry.
