I have posted dressers before. This is not much different except size. 50 inches tall and 46 inches wide. 18 inches deep. Did manage to get a red spot (from the beetle kill) on one of the drawer fronts.

Brush on lacquer finish. First time I have used it. Like the finish, but the odor is awful.

Wow, one red spot, now your in trouble. What if the customer wants more red in it? Great build Monte. I like what you done with the sides.

Hey Monte, I really like the insane and wildly strong grain pattern on this piece. Very nice “POP” to the piece with wood and finish. Well done. I have some figured, spaulted, strong colors, maple for end tables, your wood reminded me of that “todo”.

Like the color in this one. Wooden or metal drawer slides?

You didn’t brush that lacquer in the house did ya? Those vapors are explosive and the fumes will do your brain some serious harm! Lets be careful. I need you to come back and try the black powder deal on those stumps in my pasture!

You sure do make good use of that Beetle Kill. You give that wood a second life.
