This project included two dressers, and two toy chests. I built these for trade for a car. They are made with solid knotty hickory exterior and poplar interior. The drawers are solid poplar with dovetail joinery and slide on wood frames. They were really fun to make, but if I were being honest with myself I had way more into them than the car I got was worth. Oh well…......
Thanks for looking.

They came out really nice, the nice thing about hickory is even without a finish they are a very good looking species.

Those look great. Sounds like your woodworking is about as profitable as mine. I’m not sure how guys make a living at it.
