    Phase III dresser the build

    Well I finally got busy on the dresser. I was going to use solid walnut 8/4 stock for the legs but when I got the price at $750 plus for what I needed I decided on an alternative. I picked up a 4" x 4" x 102" long and I re-sawed that. I got 37 pieces total. 19 pieces 53-1/2" long and 18 pieces 48-1/2" long. I also used 4 x 4 doug fir I got at lowes for the core of the legs. So for $185 I got all eight legs fabricated and looking the way I wanted them to.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Wonderful work Alan. Did you use a bag for the curved portions or cauls?

    Alan, you just keep on amazing me. If I did half the work you do with half the quality, my head would be so big I couldn't get through doors.

    I'll be riding along watching what you do.

    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
