Small chest of drawers I built for my wife’s desk at her new job. Good learning experience for me as I have never done anything like this. The drawer fronts are from a maple burl I found while chopping fire wood, it doesn’t have the stripes I was hoping it would, but looks pretty good none the less. I carved the drawer pulls and attached them with mortises and tenons. I am pretty happy with how it turned out, hope you enjoy looking.

Looks good! You get better and faster the more you do it.

Go for it Dave. If you are interested, my dimensions are 4.5”wide x 5.5” deep x 6.75” tall, however there is no magic in those numbers. I look forward to seeing how yours turns out!
