My first ever chest of drawers.
The dresser is simple rustic style and made from pine.
Drawers finger joint is made with self made jig and moldings are glued in front of the drawer panels.

Smashing job of the chest. The joinery looks to be very precise and accurate. the proportions top to bottom look great and the bracket feet set it off fantastically well.

In addition, I have also found working with pine frustrating, I find it almost impossible to prevent dinks and scars for showing before I get to complete the job. You have done a sterling job on this aspect too. Well done.

Dimensions and proportions all very pleasing especially the amount you increased each drawer from top to bottom.
Face molding joints all look very tight and the spaces around each drawer all look even.
Very well done.

Great looking chest of drawers. If you are not proud of that project you need to be! Are you going to put a finish on it? If so what kind of finish?

Nice job, Olari. I haven’t built any furniture yet but if and when I ever do I hope it turns out as nice as this.
