When your Ikea dresser is falling apart you might as well make a new dresser. So that is what I did. This chest of drawers is my largest piece yet. The incredible grain pattern, 196 total dovetails, dovetail keyed moldings, graduated hand turned knobs, and solid wood construction make it a one of a kind piece. The knobs gave me an excuse to purchase a lathe and I am looking forward to incorporating more turnings in the future. Let me know what you think.
