Just My standard dresser. 50” tall, 36” wide and 19” deep. The idea for the front was from LJ Rockyblue (Kris Williams). I saw his and just had to try it. Made of Beetle Kill Pine.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

The horizontal grain is a good design idea and looks awesome…especially since most furniture pieces have horizontal grain on their sides….

Nice experiment Monte,

I know you do a lot of visual research and you’re adding The big dog’s (Charles Neil) methods and techniques to your brand, I am reminded of the Art Deco furniture I have had since I was a kid which may be a subjective response on my part. You have been experimenting with the waterfall and live edge in benches/coffee tables. This too looks like waterfall from the vertical front. In this case I’m thinking pulls that integrate with the waterfall theme. Or hollowing out the pulls in the drawer faces.

I’m thinking use the same wood with similar vertial patterns and tones to keep the eye moving through out the piece.

If this is already a collaboration between you and a customer…Never Mind..LOL! :<D

I agree. Those vertical grain drawer fronts are really attractive and very unique. I can’t ever recall seeing drawer fronts with vertical grain.

Super looking dresser Monte, I agree that vertical grain on the front of the drawers is great.

‘Standard’ with a WOW factor that is so subtle and visually appealing it may go unnoticed, at first. Love it, Monte!

It definitely has a great look to it. It’s more than a keeper.

Monte I really like the vertical grain drawers, but I wish the pulls weren’t there. They look small on the large drawers and detract from that nice grain figure down the center.

Maybe some square wood or white ceramic pulls ( one each on the two small drawers and two each on the larger drawers, aligned with the top pulls ). Hope you don’t mind the criticism.
