This is the first installment of my bedroom suite. Solid red oak except for the side panels that contain some 3/4” ply. All parts are mortised into the legs, vertical parts of the face frame are lap mortised(?) into the horizontal pieces. I think I will be making a sleigh bed to match next, then on to the bedside tables and maybe a lingerie chest eventually…

Nice even spaces on the drawer fronts. Looks very nice.
Always make the lingerie chest first….......if you know what I mean.

Excellent grain flow in the drawer fronts and the hardware is awesome on this piece. I like the recessed drawer look….: )
