« Part 1: I am in the design stage, of building a Shaker Style Chest of Drawers. Part 2 of My Mom Shaker Style Chest of Drawers series Part 3: I got the basic case of the dresser! »

Today was a good day I got some work done on my mom chest of drawers, I cut all the peices for the top and sides, I got the sides gule up. Now I got to work on the drawer runners and gule up the top.

I cheated a little bit I used my benchtop table saw and my circular saw. the side panels needs some flatening with my hand planes.

It is great to follow your project.
I find no shame in using power tools.
I have to ask, are you using the right setting on your camera or is there something wrong with the focus?

I got to ask my dad about that, I think he shook the camera. :)

Are you using a plan from a book or did you make this up?

I am not using a book, I made my own plan from a dresser picture I saw online.

So you’re designing and building, that is impressive!

That is more challenging than just following a plan. You will learn a lot pretty quickly by doing this.

great job beginningwoodworker, i was reading the comments and saw that this is your own plan. i think its great to use your own plan over the ones you get in books because you can tweak it for your needs. i can’t wait too see the end result!

Charles,

This is a nice job so far. It is difficult to see the details with the camera but I can see enough to tell what is going on.

Thanks for the post.

Nice job so far… To echo previous comments I think it’s quite impressive that you have tackled design as well. Not everyone does.
