Beetle kill pine. 48” X 36” X 18”.

I still need to improve my construction. It’s better than my past ones, but areas I can grow in. I bought an Incra Ibox for doing the joints on drawers. They are the best I have ever made.

Thanks for looking

As a matter of fact, the people came for the dresser and bought the trunk. Life is good.

Nice, I envy your sawmill capability. I have an Alaskan mill but it’s such a hassle I haven’t used it in years.

Glad they bought both pieces. They belonged together. This has the same great color as the chest.

Can’t believe you bragged on the drawer joinery and then didn’t show a pic!

I would also like to see how the drawer slides are done.

I would probably ease the corners and edges of the handles (3/16-1/4” roundover) – just a suggestion that you probably don’t need since they are selling as fast as you can build them!
