I have lurked for years, signed up recently, and I wanted to post something to introduce myself. So hello everybody!
Before my daughter was born I thought to myself I’m going to make her a dresser. Besides a bookcase that was not very exciting this is the first piece of furniture I ever made. I learned a lot. Namely have a plan. I may have spent more time thinking about how to build a dresser than actually building the dresser.
It’s made completely of oak from my uncles farm. I’m not too fond of oak but I have access to a lot of it so it’s what I used. I wanted to hand dovetail the drawers but considering I spent so much time thinking about simply how to build a dresser I used a pocket hole jig instead.
The finish is just boiled linseed oil.
