Default Chest of drawers

They do indeed grow up too fast.

My grand daughter Mia, turned 4 recently. Even at that age, she's is into her wardrobe *L*. This little one really loves to dress up. She has easily outgrown her current chest of drawers soooooooooo....you don't have to twist my arm

Started out with a trip to Mars Lumber in Mars Pa.. and coming home with 100 board feet of red oak and hard maple (there was actually 4 more red oak boards than whats shown in the pic)

Wasn't too long before it started looking like something. Finally finished her up tonight...couple of light coats of poly last few evenings and she's ready to go....

I've got a entire series of pics on the build.. just wanted to post these first.. might do a how-to on it...

thank ya guys, but in all honesty, she's a fundamentals kind of build. Nothing fancy. The daughter actually picked out the plans and said THIS IS WHAT I WANT...there were not many options available *LOL*.. bout the only thing I got my way on was the little inlay work on the upper right corner..

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

WOW! This is the kind of piece that she will be able to pass on to her own children and grandchildren one day.

Absolutely beautiful.
