Lightly distressed alder box. Curved drawer faces with box joint construction. The pine top is a “crazy” quilt pattern set like tile in a 6/4 Alder frame. The legs are pine logs used for corrals. I used a pine strip on the backsplash and hand turned pine knobs to offset the dark color of the Alder.

Man that is really nice. I really like the contrasting woods you used Dennis and the curved drawer faces. The framed in top and the legs really frame this piece and show it off nicely… Great work..

Dennis, beautiful and one-of-a-kind, like all your stuff!

I really like the contrast of the pine top, especially with the quilt pattern.

definitely a “Dennis Mitchell”
I really love (well the front drawers too) but I really love how the back legs come up right through the piece while the front legs stop a the top.. COOL.
You are one very creative wood artist!
