This is a dresser I completed for my wife last year, constructed in red oak with natural stain and several coats of wipe-on poly. The drawer’s glide on simple polished/waxed hickory stripes, (top, bottom and sides) a method I have used on my later furniture items, got tired of fusing with/looking at the metal drawer glides.

well done… very functional… and I like the wood runners vs metal slides… much nicer for a piece like this.

of course if I used it, I’d never remember which drawer had my underwear…

it would look great in any home… I’m sure your wife enjoys…

WOW!!!!!! Beautiful job!!!!!!! You have serious skills, and you must have the patience of Job to build something that complex. Your wife probably smiles everytime she opens one of those drawers, thinking about the love and effort her husband put into making that dresser.

Very nice and well done I will haft to agree with being tired of looking at metal drawer glides they can be a pain and not look as good as all natural construction…
