This is my third attempt at the dresser. The first two belong to family members that promised not to point out my mistakes. It’s 50” tall, 36” wide and 20” deep. It’s made of beetle kill pine . The top is poured epoxy. I chose to use live-edge on the drawer fronts and if you look closely you can see worm holes in th drawer fronts as well.

Maybe it’s the lighting or your integration of pattern and color, but I think you got it! A winner!

Love the rustic look. Would be well suited for a mountain cabin.

Yeah, I need to decide on a design for wooden drawer pulls. That’s one thing I am not thrilled with on it.
