I built this seven drawer chest for our new borne son who is now 1. His dresser features quarter sawn white oak with mahogany veneered side panels and inlaid accents. The sleigh style dresser was made to complement the changing table. This is not your average baby furniture as it’s intended to serve many years of use and will hopefully be handed down as a family heirloom. The construction consists of tongue and groove frame and panel sides. Maple frame and panel dust frames separate each drawer compartment and are received by dadoes in the case sides. The drawer boxes are maple ply edged with white oak and ride on full extension slides. The rear of the case is a frame and panel construction as well making use of the 1/4” maple ply I had left over from the drawer bottoms. The styles that form the front and rear feet are 3/4” thick and flair to 1 1/2” thick at the bottom for added strength in the feet.
