Adam's Winter Projects Part 1

My husband Adam was busy in the garage for most of the holiday season making many things that beautified our home.

I love relaxing in a bath with a good book and so he made me this. It is quarter-sawn oak, with a danish oil and a few coats of oil urethane.

I love this dresser he made for our bedroom. It is a 7-drawer chest made of mahogany. Plans for this chest can be found on the New Yankee Workshop

I especially love the brass hardware. They really set it off nicely.

My art teacher painted this beautiful oil painting of the two of us, but Adam made the frame. Again, quarter-sawn oak, danish oil, but finished with a lacquer.

  1. I can't believe he made that dresser. That is amazing. I love the painting of you two, it has so much character and so touching!

  2. what stain did he use on the wood for the dresser? It's so elegant.

  3. Wow! Between the two of you, you guys could put together an AMAZING homemade home. I'm soooo impressed.
