I built this dresser to match the bed i built my daughter a few years ago. Its supposed to be a matching bedroom set but it takes me a while. I worked on this project for almost a year. Between work and kids just didn’t get much time on the shop. I decided i was going to hand dovetail all the drawers which took a while. I was pretty happy with how the dovetails turned out. This was the first time I’ve ever hand cut half-blind dovetails. It was an interesting learning process. I also had a snag with the drawer slides. I didn’t have a big budget to spend on fancy slides so i decided to use wood slides but they didn’t work smoothly enough. I was given a piece of a plastic cutting board the i used for slides(3rd picture). They worked very well. I’m currently working on a bedside table to match. hopefully it won’t take me as long. Thanks for looking.
