  1. Neat project! I’m a little OCD, so I wouldhave to:
    cut a thin piece of veneer or plywood, the same size as the drawer front;
    lay out the wood blocks, with spacers between the pieces to make them evenly spaced;
    glue each one in its precise location;
    dry, under heavy weight, face up, on a *perfectly* flat surface;
    glue whole boards with attached pieces, to drawer front;…
    after each drawer was assembled, quickly make the drawer pulls.
    Then… it’d be another few hours aligning the drawer pulls, because they MUST BE PERFECTLY ALIGNED AND LEVEL or it will drive me crazy every time I look at it. 🤪😖🙄 I’m soooo NOT a Rustic-look kinda person. But I can certainly appreciate all the hard work that went into this project! Congratulations on completing it! 🙂

  2. great idea, but i would suggest investing in at least a cheap drill press. save you some pain and skin at some point down the road..been there, done that…

    1. Thanks for the tip, Darrell! 🙂

  3. Great job! I actually like yours better than the original, especially because of the legs. (that link to the original didn’t work, but I went directly to West Elm.)

    1. Thanks so much! And thanks for letting me know about the link – it works on my computer, I’ll have to test it out on my husband’s computer and see if I can figure it out!

  4. I really love this dresser, and you guys made it look so professional. The wood pieces remind me of Jenga 🙂
