Built from salvaged maple and redwood. Chunks that floated up over the years, I free hand slabbed the pieces then planed them, it was a pretty long process with caveman tools (use what you got) This was one of my first drawer projects. I think I might stick to twisted stuff lol Finished with poly.

LOVE IT! A beautiful and sturdy piece! I love the figured maple, one of my favorites!

That’s quite a sock drawer alarm!
