Modeled after a similar dresser that was posted here on lumberjocks.

Red oak construction, solid top with breadboard ends, through mortise and tenons on the front. Drawers are flush fit quartersawn red oak with metal slides and mission style pulls. Drawer fronts are pinned to the drawer sides as shown in FWW a few months ago. Stained with Varathane, Gunstock stain.

Jeremy, that is stunning and classic looking.

I actually like how you mixed the QS and flatsawn oak on the front.

Excellent and professional looking job on the construction, as well as the appropriate finish.
