Six drawer dresser for my future daughter. Walnut drawer fronts with routed finger pulls. Poplar base and drawer boxes. Baltic birch ply casework trimmed with poplar. General Finishes Arm-R-Seal on the drawer fronts. Shellac on the drawer box. The casework is all primed and painted with a gel trim and door paint.
This was a project of many firsts for me, starting with color and grain matching. Got very familiar with mortise and tenon joinery! First time with tapers, so i had to construct a quick jig…definitely room for improvement on the jig itself, but the results were great! Also, first time with half blind dovetails ( yes i use a jig!!!....go ahead and judge :))
I definitely learned a lot during this project and know where i can make improvements on future projects! Thanks for checking it out!
