Another Christmas present down.

32” tall x 22” wide x 22” deep. Beetlte kill Pine. 2” slab construction. The inside of top drawer is Red Cedar. Drawers are finger jointed together. I am not overly thrilled with my handles, but I didn’t find anything I really liked and my wood ones I usually use just didn’t look right. Wooden slides for the drawers. I am finally getting better at these.

Thanks for looking

I have about 200,000 beetle kill pine trees to choose from.

Finish is 6 coats of water based poly.

You must have been forgetting to sleep lately, with all the work you have been putting out. All of it looks very
good. Thank you for sharing.

Those are looking really good Monte…most certainly work that will be cherished..You can always change out the handles when you decide in something different that you like.

That’s a lot of pine! LOL! Any problems with expansion and contraction? Since it is a visually powerful piece, my first response to the handles is more power? Interesting as I am thinking about functional night stands as My wife bought a couple pieces years ago that are falling apart. Thanks.
