Here is a dresser that I build for my son. It is made from Makore and maple plywood, both of which were originally intended for another project (the desk posted separately). The sun, sailboat and submarine are inlayed into the front of the drawers. I finished with a water based polyurethane.

Very nice, I ike the inlay work, I have been fiddling with it a little bit and know it’s not easy. Nice color contrast as well.
