Useful Things

Not all the wood I collect is destined for the fireplace. These bits are being hobbled together to make a midget chest of drawers about 15" high and 8" wide.

I use poly-fill rather than wood putty. It's easier to use and stains nicely.

Two coats of interior matte latex covers up the fact that there is four different types of wood in this project. The drawer pulls are beads attached to drywall screws.

In between waiting for glue to dry on the first set of drawers, I tackled this 15" by 6" by 5" dresser caddy. Note the continuous grain on the drawers and pulls made of flat beads.
