New furniture addition
« on: August 05, 2013, 12:41:28 AM »
Son going to college so we set out to find him a cheap second hand dresser for his house. After looking at a few cheap (and I mean cheap) we ran up on this one just browsing the store.
Compared to the "New" models, this was relatively cheap, but not as cheap as we were planning. I actually walked away from it a few times, the last time I glanced back at it from a distance, I knew I had to buy it.
I don't think I have admired a piece of furniture like I have this one, and I have built many pieces.
So we are giving him the old one in this room I call my "computer room" (probably because there are 6 computer cases in it) and this one will become my constant companion. I have to admit I really liked it. All wood, big roomy drawers, dust dividers under every chest, dovetail joints, corner blocks everywhere, outlays on each drawer that creates a "frame" look, fantastic artwork...good deal.

Very nice!

And if you want, you could convert into a enormous "tower" computer case.... pullout drawers holding motherboard, drives....   :D

Actually was telling MegOhm that since the bed will be removed from this room, I could start planning on building a computer desk for it.
One with an attached seat, panel for MFD's, switches and toggles....oh wait, would that be a cockpit?
Not when I describe it to my wife at least!
