I built this dresser/tv stand for a coworker. It turned out better than I thought it would. It was the first project I built for someone else. They want to pay me for the work but I have no idea what a fair market value would be. I was wondering what everyone thinks I should charge for this. I’ve been looking on the internet but of corse I can’t find anything like it. I fell in love with Minwax Polyshades. It is so easy to apply and the end results are simply amazing. I used the classic black and I love the fact that I can still see the wood grain is awesome. You can see in the pictures why I wanted to cover up the wood with a uniform color and wanted to keep the grains. The DVD pull outs are removable. They are just that, they pull out. I put felt on the top of the metal so they wouldn’t scratch the tray. The metal on the slide was hand bent and polished so I can fit 14 DVD’s per tray. I asked the coworker if he wanted it to be able to come apart to move or strong. He told me strong. This dresser is made from 2 1/2 sheets of 3/4” oak Ply, screwed and glued. I truly believe you could drop this off of a building and it wouldn’t hurt anything maybe dent the wood a little. LOL. All and all I built this with My son in mind so if the coworker doesn’t like if for some reason I would have no problem putting it in his room. Since I’ve discovered the Kreg Jig I don’t think I have done or could do a project without it.
