no previous part Part 1 of Dresser Build series Part 2: 4 drawers completed. »

I started this project a few months ago and have been working on it when time allows. This is a dresser sized to fit in a specific location. I tried to design it so that the proportions looked good. Hopefully I have succeeded.
Made with cherry plywood and hardwood. Here’s a few photos of the build.

I am veneering the drawer fronts with sepelle and home made cross banding.
I sealed the wood with clear shellac and then applied red mahogany stain. Once it’s all completed I’ll spray the dresser with poly or lacquer.

Nice and those drawers will be out standing!!!
From what little we can see this is going to be really fancy.
