i always wanted a mohagany dresser so i decided to build myself one. not really sure what design i wanted to follow and so after looking at a few on the site (i borrowed some ideas from you) i ended up with this so far. tell me what you think?

my panels are 3/4 plywood
legs are 1 1/2 squared
moldings are just a cove and bead set up(end up trying to hide unsightly gaps after gluing up everything)

i just have to fill some nail holes now

drawers are being dovetailed on the jig, i’ll post that later when i have some more time! i tried hand dove tails but disaster struck many times so i had to abort that mission and flee to the jig!

sorry my lumber brothers but the pictures are being cut off and i don’t know why

Very cool! I always wanted a gentleman’s chest, and then I made one. You’ll forget about the trials & tribulations as time goes by…

That is good looking so far. What are the dimensions—just roughly?

60w X 37h X 27 inches deep

sucks because most under mount slides are only 21 inches which means i lose 6 inches
