This posting was a job I done for a customer that wanted to reuse there grandparents furnature. I had built a ceader bed for them so they wanted the dressers to match but were afraid that there would be to much cedar. So we looked at several combanations and decide on curly maple on the drawers and cedar on the cases. I used the iron on process to apply the veneer , I also had to do a lot of repair work, ever joint was loose. The whole job took me around 40 hours over a 2 week period. There are some handles missing off the hutch , they arrived after the customer had picked it up. There are before and after pictures. Thanks for looking.

Welcome to LJ’s. That is a nice job with the repair and veneer. The maple pops.
