A follow-up on an earlier piece...

After some houseguests suggested my spare bedroom needed to be a little more user friendly - I built a tall chest in red oak. It had plenty of drawer space, and a countertop area for holding a backpack or purse. 

The piece went together fairly quickly, but - as in most of my pieces - I suffered with the details. I must have made three different versions of drawer fronts - carved, painted, and laminated, until I decided on these.  

(Here's proof that I did, indeed, commit to a design!)

It's the small stuff that bogs me down, not the larger picture. Go figure!
