Haven’t posted anything in a while, but still making sawdust over here .This piece was made from some great wood we cut years ago, saving it for just the right use. All sawn veneers. This is one of those very simple, ” let the wood do the talking” pieces. A little koa inlay around the top, and a very simple drawer pull dovetailed into the top of the drawer.
Happy all-the-days !

Quite exceptional work. Wood selection and layout is awesome – that is some beautiful wood and you display it perfectly. I love the shape and proportions of the dresser and find it quite elegant. Beautiful craftsmanship throughout.

Ditto on what you said about letting the lumber do the talking. Ohhh yes! Your design does it justice too.

Bravo!
