This was one of my first woodworking projects as an adult returning to the craft after many years. It also took two years to complete, as the first time around I failed to get the case frame straight and the drawers were terrible. Finally I scrapped the first set of drawers and remade them, adding walnut accents and custom made drawer pulls. A priime example of learning more from my mistakes than my successes.

Anyone have any hints how to improve the thumbnails – anything with vertical orientation seems to get clipped off.

For a 1st time project after your long sabatical, I thought it turned out rather nicely. I recently made a sewing center for my wife, from red oak and walnut. I really like the combination of the two woods. Nice job! Sorry I can’t help you with the thumbnails. I’ve still got this one thumbnail that’s still healing from the last time I hit it with a hammer.
