Very nice project. I like the side panels. Would you mind giving me the dimensions of the cabinet?
Thank you

This is as David Savage would say “A Wow Piece” ( I wish I’d built that) Really great balance in wood and movement as well as proportion.

Beautiful dresser! I really like the choice of walnut. I would like to learn how to make a piece of furniture like that.

Nice work as always, John. I like the homemade touch of the drawer pulls. Are they simply glued lap joints or reinforced in some way I can’t detect?
