This happens to be the first woodworking project I ever worked on. Period. I had never even made a bird house before. I don’t know what came over me but all of a sudden I just had to start making something with wood. I watched Norm Abram build this dresser in a 30 min show so I thought “surely I could build it in an hour”. LOL. I didn’t have any tools then but my dad did and he lived right across the street. So I spent a couple hours a night over there for the next 4 months! I ordered the plans and video from the New Yankee website and followed them as best I could. Half of the time spent on this project, I spent learning how to use the tools properly and aligning them accurately. This project is by no means perfect, the dadoes aren’t as snug as I would like, the carcass isn’t exactly square, but it looks decent on the exterior and the drawers slide in and out smoothly and it has lasted for 5 years so far. I learned an amazing amount of woodworking from this project and from then on, I was hooked!

From the picture, your first attempt was a big success. Pretty ballsy for a wood working introduction. Good job man.
