« Part 5: Drawer fronts mounted Part 6 of Pine Shaker Closet Dresser series no next part

I found a little time between driving kids to dancing lessons, cleaning the pool, checking on the crew in the greenhouses (working overtime on Saturday), to work on the dresser. I have the feeling I started five other uncompleted projects while this dresser is waiting for attention.

But we finally got to the point that the dresser is complete, the top is on, the drawers all line up, the drawer fronts are on, the hardware is temporarily installed.

I am happy with the result.

So here you have it. As soon as I have this dresser coated with lacquer, I will post it on LJ. Thanks for all your nice comments and encouragements.

That’s a good looking piece, can’t wait to see the grain after the finish brings it out.

Nicely done. – Len

Looks great! That should provide plenty of storage space for you. I need to build a dresser for the wife. I’ve got that big pile of padouk to use and figure that will work fine. I just need to find the design I want. Might steal a couple ideas from yours!

Thanks, Len, it’s been fun.

Smitty, it’s all about the eyes. Thanks.

Willie, only you can steel any of my ideas. Maybe I need to help you out with some of the padouk, lol.

I think it turned out so nice.
The finish is top, and now we really see how the handles match.
Congrat on that build, now it will be wonderful to fill it up with underware ‘size matters’ and perhaps a few secrets…
Best thoughts to you and the rest of the family,
