The drawer bottoms of my wife’s dresser started falling out the other day and after looking at the crazy price I’d have to pay for a quality replacement, I decided to make one myself.

Made from #2 pine. Drawers are dovetailed and 3/4 thick. It’s a little heavy but I don’t have to worry about them coming apart.

Finished with stain on the body and polyurethane on all external parts.

Nice – I like the ‘naked’ drawer fronts against the stained dividers, legs and top

Real nice clean lines. What color stain did you use? It makes a very nice contrast.

Geeze, why spend all that effort on #2 Common when for about the same $$ you can get Select?

I used dark walnut stain.

Around here #2 Pine is 1/4 the price of Select.

1×10x8 “Quality” is $6, select is $25.
