This is a dresser that I just finished building for my little girl coming in November. The frame is poplar and all of the facing along with the top is maple. I decided to leave the top live. Really happy with the way that it turned out. Enjoy!

Great decision leaving the live edge! Incredible looking wood and finish!

-- Tom Finnigan - Measures? We don't need no stinking measures! - Hmm, maybe thats why my project pieces don't fit.

That is beautiful. Lotsa fine grain in that.
