This was being built long before the fair. Wasn’t finished, but I put it on display anyway. Tomorrow it will be both finished and sold. Just have to put the drawer pulls on. Customer was going to bring me store bought ones, but called tonight and said to just make wooden ones for it.

It’s beetle kill pine. 2 inch thick slabs. Probably the last piece I make ahead of time with 2” slabs. Looks too bulky. It is 50” tall, 36” wide and 20” deep. It has metal drawer slides. The top is poured on epoxy. Everything else is Danish Oil and Polyurethane.

Thanks for looking

Sorry, rotated pictures

I think that dresser will outlast all of us Monte. Looks great.

Monte you are teasing us. lets see that band saw in action !

If your “Big Dresser” is any example, ...its gunna be good!!

Something you could whip the drawers out of and build an impromptu shelter in case of an earthquake

Nice to hear you have the job to make handles for it as well.

Nice rugged work!

Nice piece. Your work certainly speaks for itself and it did a great job of that at the show.

How are you constructing the drawers? I’d like to see the finished piece with the pulls you make. Is this the piece you were working on at the fair?

This is not the one from the picture at the fairgrounds. I was building 2 of them. I still need to finish the drawers for the other one.

I will post pictures of the drawer pulls later today.

Another nice piece, Monte. You are always very productive. I bet that piece is heavy.

Congratulations on the sale and on your outstanding work ethic. You remind me of a good friend of mine at the gun club who developed a very successful business (from manufacturing to sales) selling oak furniture (oak is big down here in the hills). My friend was successful through never ending perseverance and work—keep it up because you’re well on your way!

Monte, another great looking build.
I think the 2” thickness looks good with the live edge, looking forward to seeing your pulls
