The love of my life has decided that my son needs a new dresser. My wife loves Pottery Barn furniture.
I love to make furniture.
My suggestion was “Why don’t I build a dresser with some really nice wood and save a few bucks in the process?” .
I purchased around 50 board feet of quartersawn sycamore this morning from a nearby lumberyard. I feel like I got a fair deal.
Has anyone used quartersawn sycamore for a furniture project?
I am planning to use a clear finish.
I have read that sycamore can be unstable but that quartersawn is significantly more stable.
I am open to all suggestions and appreciate the help. I will keep this blog updated as my project progresses.
I attached a link to some pics of the lumber I bought. One picture is with the flash, one is without. The last picture is some of the boards laid out on the floor.
Thanks for the help.
