Here’s a few pics of a dresser I just finished building for my wife. Its a Gustav Stickley model 913 designed by Harvey Ellis in about 1903. Ammonia fumed quarter sawn white oak. I just applied the first coat of T & T Danish Oil finish. All joints are dowel pinned mortise and tenon (some double tenons). Drawers are through-dovetails cut on the tablesaw and bandsaw using the method described by Duginske with false fronts applied.
Color from the fuming varied a lot but that’s to be expected and gives it a bit of character. Naturally I see a lot of mistakes but I’m pretty happy with it overall. My wife seems to like it and my daughter want’s one now. Hand hammered, oiled bronze drawer pulls from Chris at Craftsmen Hardware set it off nicely.
Its been a real learning process and I’m a different woodworker now than when I started.
