This this is a bedroom set I am building for my wife and me. The dressers and nightstands are done with the bed still to be complete. The wood is mostly salvaged mahogany that was pulled out of a law office. The drawers are baltic birch with rabbeted dovetails. The fronts of the door are quilted maple that has some really cool grain to it.

When I see something like this I think, “Some lucky kid is going to inherit that one day!” Very nice work.

You seem to have a knack at finding sweet salvaged material. These look great. You have way too much room in your shop holy @#$%^...

Yeah I always keep my eye out for deals on material and often buy good deals or take free stuff with no real idea what I am going to do with it. It drives my wife nuts but o’well :)

The shop is in the basement of a friends house which he built to host wedding and events. I got really lucky a few years ago when he said I could move out of my one car garage and into this basement space. Overall it is great the only downside is that most Saturday’s during the summer it is used by weddings, but it is a small sacrifice for having the space.

Beautifully done. I love the red wood of the mahogany and the contrasting quilted maple. Nice salvage too.
