So I got a bunch of random colored wood from a neighbor who heard the racket I was making and recognized the sounds of a fellow wood guy.

None of the wood was straight, complete or really much of anything. I decided to cut the wood up in 2” thick pieces at equally random lengths for what I call this “Quilted” Barn Wood Dresser.

Outstanding. I really like the ‘fun’ and creative look to it. Very worthwhile!

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)

Absolutely love this! The title caught my eye, because I am a quilter as well as a newby woodworker, and I’m been trying to come up with ways to blend the two. So much character in this piece.

-- No, I don't want to buy the pink hammer.

This looks great. Great job turning what could be considered “scrap” into something awesome.
