Crabbe Dresser

This dresser was created with salvaged wood from the Comox Valley. The dresser box is made from a spalted big leaf maple, which had been left laying on a sawyers property for many years. The live edge was peeled of bark and sanded smooth to showcase the natural beauty and intricate characteristics of the wood. The drawer fronts were made of red alder which was removed from a local farmers field due to crop reasons. The natural edge of the tree was used to shape a distinctive drawer pull. The drawer boxes were made from a Western Red Cedar tree that my neighbour cut down during the winter. It's built using traditional techniques of mortise and tenon and dovetail joinery.
