Bow-Front, Bow-Sided Hall Dresser

This small dresser is made with red oak and walnut. It is about 40” wide, about 26” deep and 30” tall. The sides are 1/4” oak plywood, kerf-cut on the back so it would bend into the slots routed in each leg with a straight bit. The drawer fronts are red oak resawed, then plastic resin glued back together in a form to get the curves. The drawers are birch plywood, with the inside front pieces kerf-cut to bend easily so the curve could match the drawer fronts and the curved face frame. The drawer front inlays are walnut. The finish is sanding sealer and lacquer, sprayed. This was originally to be donated for a charity auction, but my wife decided she wanted it for our entry hall. So now I have to make something else for the auction!

Phenomenal! Amazing! I want one! How did you make the legs? Were they cut from solid blanks? I don’t even know what questions to ask. That is simply beautiful work!

Beautiful looking dresser. Very nicely done. What brand resin glue did you use? Would you use it again or would you pick another brand?

That is a great piece! Well done. I’ve never tried kerf cutting before. How deep and close together were the cuts to be able to bend smoothly like that?
