I made this dresser for my daughter. It was her changing table as well at the time. The materials are oak and walnut with maple drawers. I used blum undermount guides. As always I welcome constructive criticism, positive or negative.

Cool.
The frame and panel drawers look good.
I have never seen the beading applied to the frame and not the drawer. I like it.

it’s hard to find anything to criticize on that, and I bet the pictures really don’t do it justice. Great job.

The walnut accents this piece beautifully. You have some really nice tight gaps around the drawer openings. I too was shocked to see the beading around the frame vs drawers…..but it works well.
Nice Job.

Beautiful piece and beautiful workmanship, of course we have come to expect that from you. I suspect that your grandchildren (and beyond) will feel the same way.

Out side the box with the walnut beading but that is what it is all about… nicely executed and definitely a winner in my book…. I often use accents and the way you have done this is something I will emulate.

I like the two woods together too. Great build and a piece to be proud of.

Cute. I didn’t understand the title of the post until I saw Tigger.

Very Very Nice, I was looking at this and my wife came by and took a fit over it. But she is a hugh fan of Winnie the Poo.
Did you make the crib also?

Okay….you asked for constuctive criticism….I don’t see an OSHA approved safety rail in case the baby wants to roll off :) too hard to say anything about your project except nicely done!
