I made these to replace two old oddball pieces in the house. The exterior is all cherry with the drawer box made with elm. Old school drawer slide on the rail with mortise and tenon construction. The pulls are from walnut and not wanting to drive 60 miles for 3 feet of walnut dowel I made made it myself. It stands 30” tall 28” wide and 15” deep

Very nice dresser Tim. Do I need to ask where the cherry came from?

I agree with everyone. Really nice and the walnut handles really set if off.

Hi Dave. This cherry has been sitting patiently in my garage for almost ten years getting used gradually for my previous furniture projects. It’s origin was from over by Savanna Il. I’m trying to get plans for the chairs to a Tim Russo table set for the kitchen to finish the group.

You got the cherry from out of town? Now THAT is funny!

As usual, quality workmanship. I agree with everybody, the handles have a huge impact.

Personally, the apron (skirt?) with curve in it does it for me.

I am feeling a little better and will see you one of these days.
