I made this dresser for a customer,1st of 3. The corner post are from pine fence post, the top is made from 2x construction lumber as are the “log” drawer fronts (all dried in a make shift kiln to bring the moisture content down). The drawer fronts are then rounded with the bark side out. The sides are resawn 2×8s, with the saw marks left outside, giving it a rustic look.
