Herringbone 3 Drawer Chest
Herringbone is all the craze again. I've been re doing our master bedroom building one piece of furniture at a time. When it came time for my bedside dresser, I could not settle for plain. I saw a wardrobe that was made from leftover prefinished walnut flooring. Knowing that fancy hardwoods were out of my budget, I began thinking outside the box. I stumbled upon Acacia deck tiles at my local Ikea. I unscrewed the wooden pieces and used them to create a herringbone pattern for the drawer fronts of the chest I built. The pieces were not perfect but I decided not to trim them. I figured the imperfections would just add character to the piece. Since Acacia is such a beautiful wood, I choose not to stain but to enhance the natural grain patterns with Tung Oil.
I am very pleased with the outcome and I've gotten tons of compliments. It's projects like this that encourage me to keep on building.
