This is a chest on chest dresser from Woodsmith vol 21 / No 125. I built this 17 years ago and it’s held up well. Wood on wood slides. Machine cut dovetails. It’s 60.5” tall. Red oak with a Minwax stain.

Ron that’s funny, yes I’m afraid so. Been doing this for awhile. No spring chicken but a loooong long way from retirement. It was only about 5 years ago that I began going old school. Had the equipment, lacked the knowledge and confidence. Probably a little lazy too. Thanks everyone for the compliments.

This chest on chest is an outstanding piece and is so beautifully done. I love the wood and the finish.
