Built in chest of drawers
      #1570 - Thu May 30 2002 11:38 PM Attachment (460 downloads)

Lack of skivie storage space prompted me to build in a bank of drawers in my bathroom wall. The drawer faces are a real fluk. Last winter I went to one of the local sawmills to buy some curly maple when I noticed this strange looking log coming off the debarker. The operator dumped it into the reject pile to be ground up as chips. I asked the owner if I could buy it as a pulp log. The short version is I paid him $25 bucks for the log and another $25 to have it sawed. He thought I was nuts. Turns out is was a soft maple birdseye log with huge eyes and flame curl, in 15 years of selling figured wood it's the only birdseye soft maple I ever seen. Decided to use one board and make something nice for the misses.

I don't mean to tell you what to do here, Armin, but I think it would look better if the trim on the sides and top were of the same wood.

Or maybe a light colored walnut ?

Luka, Yes you are right, the trim is temporary as is the off center thermostat. This was a quickie project, the real trim comes later.

Armin ,
Those are cool drawers for your drawers.
I think that some of the figure looks like it has some faces in it .

Thanks Don, I don't know about the faces but I can see the eyes everywhere.

Was the owner of the sawmill russian? was there a black helicopter parked out back? You can never be too paranoid about this stuff.

Just to be sure maybe you should paint over all them eyes!!
