This is made of figured Poplar that we found in a pile at our favorite lumber yard there were only a few boards of it. The base is made of pine. All the trim is wenge. My wife wanted a treehouse so now she has one and she can put all her jewelry in it as well. Some of the drawers are double deep and have removable trays in the for added storage.

This is really nice. Glad my wife doesn’t look at this site. I have never seen poplar like this. Nice score and nice build.

This is freakin awesome! I want to build one this style for my step-daughter one day. The addition of the “railing” on the top is cool too. You found some beautiful wood for this. Great job. I am going to favorite this one for future reference.

Great work on the box. I just love that wood. I can’t remember the last time I saw figured poplar that looked that good. Having said that, may I ask a couple of questions? I noticed that there are black separations between the drawers except the bottom drawer doesn’t have one. I also noticed that the box joints on the top two drawers don’t match from left side to right side. Are these “design choices” or is there a reason behind them that a novice like me wouldn’t know? Also, I can’t quite make out what the handles on the drawers are made of. Can you comment on those as well.

Again, fantastic project. I can only hope to do as well in the future.

Best,

-- Jim

Jim, It was not intentionally it was a mistake that I ddi not choose to correct. The handles are made of the poplar and wenge together. Thanks for the comments!
