A 9 drawer dresser built from cherry a few years ago. The plans came from Woodsmith Magazine, I scaled up the size the dresser and made it deeper than the plan called for more storage. I used ash for the drawers and use half blind dovetails using a Porter Cable jig. The slot in 4th picture is a handle to help pick up the dresser, it is located in the back near the bottom, there is on located on each end. the night stand is also from the woodsmth magazine but I had to scale down the size to fit in our small bedroom. I used a Cherry danish oil and 3 coat of wipe on poly and a coat of wax.

You did a beautiful job in building that dresser and end table!!!!! Your craftsmanship will last as long as that dresser remains in your family.

Congratulations on a job well done.

Very nice build and finish. The cherry will only look better as it keeps aging.
