This is the dresser and nightstand that was built to match the Special Edition Baseball bed in the Hornsby color. It is my regular 6 drawer dresser and 2 drawer nightstand that I normally offer with my baseball beds, but with the change in wood and color. The wood is ash to match the bed and bats from Louisville Slugger. The color is a dye stain under a wiping stain combination.

Here is the matching bed

These case goods were completed in December 2011.

The customer made a request that we use “Official” Major League Balls. Normally I use any real baseballs that I can get my hand on, but the official version was a nice touch.

Hi Chris,

I was wondering about the heavy clothes too. Is your space unheated?

I know you are a professional, but I see things in your shop that could end up costing you dearly. Both physically and financially.

For example, no splitter on your saw. (I’ve heard the “I’ve been doing this for thirty years” thing, but it only takes once). Picture sitting on a stand, defending yourself against an attorney when an employee gets cut, without a splitter and a guard. You may as well just bend over…

Sawdust on the floor around machines, which makes for a slippery and uneven footing. And the heavy clothing that could get caught in a machine.

I know it’s none of my business, but you could end up in a heap of trouble, should something go wrong.

OK, I’ll go back to minding my own business now.
