Default Patchwork plywood and ebonized oak dresser

Not something I plan on making, but looks neat.

What a great use of cutoffs. I love how the patterns continue across the gaps between drawers. I like it, but not sure I'd like to live with it. It's more a dining room sidebar than a bedroom dresser. It's definitely a centerpiece item.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

That is what I like about pieces like this. Loads of fun to make, wouldn't be caught dead with it, so make it, and sell it to someone for serious bucks.

Here is another patchwork piece. I would NOT make one for my shoes or boots, not to keep anyway. But enlarge it, to make a chest, and then I would be interested in having one for myself.

OMG, I hadn't watched the video, so I went back and watched part of it. And now wish I hadn't.
