Here’s a couple of pics of a chest of drawers I made for my youngest granddaughter. The primary wood is tiger maple and the secondary is poplar. It took about a month to complete.

That is a beautiful chest of drawers! I love that tiger maple, and the elegant look of it. I’m sure your granddaughter will just love it, and pass it down to her granddaughter!

Thank you for all the compliments. For the color I used a water based dye lockwood 144 and sprayed it on.
