Just finished up an oak dresser that will double as a changing table for our first child due this November. The design is pretty standard but the dimensions are my own design. The feet are the area that I feel like were the biggest design risk but I’m happy with how they turned out. My goal was to make the piece match with the crib that is posted in the background of one of the photos. I did this by tapering the feet, using a lot of the same roundover profiles and using the same dye.
Finish is a coat of Trans Fast dark mission brown under a few coats of water based poly. This was the first time that I sprayed stain or dye and I must say I really enjoy it. This was also the first time making drawers and I’m quite happy with how they turned out too. Someday I’ll move on to box joints or dovetails but for now these aren’t going anywhere. We don’t have the kid yet and my wife has already filled it up with his/her stuff! Drawer boxes are 1/2” oak veneer ply with 1/4” ply bottom. Case is all oak that I inherited from my grandpa.
If interested in the crib I covered that with lots of pics in a prior post here.
Thanks For Looking
