This one is a few years old. I made it in preparation for my wife and I’s first child. My wife was hoping for a crib, but I felt a little safer trying to make the dresser. So we found a few pictures of dresser’s that we liked in magazines and I went to work. Since I didn’t have any plans for this dresser I experimented with a couple kinds of joints and methods of construction. I can’t say that I was completely happy with the results, or rather how it all fit together. But overall I think it turned out okay. The dark wood you see is Wenge, an exotic african wood. Another one of my experiments with this project. I learned a lot on this project and that’s I think what’s most important. The main part of the dresser is made from red elm.
