This is the third dresser I’ve built. It’s for my third child, our second son we’re expecting in early November. I’ve learned quite a bit during this process and between the face frame and the drawers, got quite a bit of practice and gained some skill at making through dovetails. If you’re interested in some additional details, I blogged the build process on my personal blog as well as my blog here at LJ. I’ve also posted a photo gallery of the build.
I had some fun playing with the photography on this project. Clearly I need a new camera, additional lights, “real” backdrops and some actual training! On second thought, I think I’ll just deal with things as they are and put the money I save on camera gear/classes towards new tools!
Here’s my daughter in her modeling debut:
Here are the other two dressers in the series:
While still far from perfect, I’m very pleased with the outcome and hope that my son will enjoy this dresser for years to come. Thanks for looking!
I’ve posted the baby’s room this piece was built for over at HomeRefurbers.com. Check it out if you’re so inclined!
