An ash lingerie dresser I made for the little lady. Nothing fancy but she likes it and it matches our bed and night stands. Dark walnut watco with a spray lacquer finish.

This is a very nice looking project… only one improvement required… perhaps some display pieces so we can see how much it holds.. :)

That is a very nice piece. I like the frame and panel construction and the contrasting pulls. Excellent work!
Just one consideration – the cathedral grain pattern on the rails and stiles for the sides is a bit crazy and pulls the eye a bit away from the nice grain pattern you selected for the panels. I haven’t worked with ash before. Is it possible to get quartersawn or riftsawn ash that might give you a more unobtrusive frame so that the panels can really pop?

I like the drawer profile. I once made a office cabinet with same drawers. Quite easy to do and really looks smart. I like the color as well. I am partial to dark walnut Watco stain as well. Very good work.Just one thing ! Does she get dressed out in front of house , there is a car parked beside her cabinet ? (Chuckle)

That looks great. You are a lucky man to have a wife who has that much lingerie.

I have to agree with everything that the previous LJs said ;-)
But … the more I read ”... nothing fancy …” in connection with beautifully built furniture, like this … the less motivated I am to post what I build :-(
In other words … really nice job!
