This is Faith’s Dresser. I was working on a tight budget on this one so the drawer fronts are not solid wood. They are maple veneer over MDF, which is what is used on the top as well. Since the edges of MDF are not very pretty, the drawer is wrapped with cherry. Below is a cutaway view of the drawer front that shows how the cherry is rounded and sticks out past the maple.

Wow, that’s something else. Your daughter must be proud, that veneer work looks great. How much time went into this piece?
