This is a hickory dresser I made for a client in Scotland. The frame is held together with dovetails. The drawer boxes are constructed with dovetails and I used sliding dovetails for the drawer glides.

It looks really good. Hopefully it was completely enjoyable for you going through the design / construction process. I really like how you lined up the grain on all the drawer fronts and all those dovetails. Wow! Great work!
