LongDraw Bedside Drawer Hardwood and Copper Pearl Shell Mosaic

Could not find any bedside drawers that were nice and long, so I decided to make one. Not having any woodwork experience at the point made things a little difficult, in hindsight I would do somethings a little differently. I could not purchase any timber planks that were 7mm thick. They only sell 12mm planks at the local mill, so I attempted to cut each plank in half, with some mixed results! And I ended up having to mix my Eucalyptus timbers.
Anyway, I am very happy with it considering, and combining mosaic and local hardwood timber is a total treat for me. And now 2 ½ yrs later I have somewhere for my socks.

Amazing that you had no woodworking experience and still made that beautiful box? You’re a natural! Keep it up!
