Just finished up this dresser to match the crib I completed a month or so ago for my son (due mid-February). I want to extend a Thank You to LJ-mattd for e-mailing me the rough dimensions of his cherry and maple dresser. The wife and I really liked the proportions of his dresser, and borrowed his dimensions for this build. Nothing too fancy here, birch frame with maple drawer fronts. Top is birch plywood from Home Depot that is trimmed in maple. I finished it with dewaxed shellac tinted with medium brown transtint. I think I will shoot on another two coats to finish the top for a total 5. Everything else got 3 coats with a 0000 steel wool buff.
