Twin dressers for my twin daughters who are 8 years old. I have been working on this project in my spare time for over a year and now they’re finally done. The girls are ecstatic!
Woods used are cherry, maple and walnut. The pulls are a bent lamination and attached with walnut dowels. The tops feature breadboard ends with walnut accent pins. The drawer boxes are maple ply edged with cherry riding on full extension ball bearing guides. Drawer box joinery is tongue and groove. I’m very pleased with how they came out and I hope I have inspired some, as I have been inspired by others. Enjoy the photos.

From one CA guy to another, well done and good looking!
The drawer pulls are a very unique concept and I really like the contrasting woods/dowels.
I am with your daughters, I like it!

Dewayne, your projects are always inspiring and this pair of chests is EXCEPTIONAL. You’ve illustrated your design expertise, your craftsmanship and really hit it out of the ballpark with fit & finish.
Thank you so much for sharing!

Fantastic job, those look very good. Where did you draw inspiration from on those curved corners?

Thank you for your praise. This is my first large scale fine furniture project in quite some time. I just don’t have the time and energy I once did. I don’t seem to have lost my ability though. Now my wife wants a low boy 6 drawer chest for the bedroom. I told her “give a couple years” LOL

The inspiration for the curves comes from furniture I have designed and built in the past. Basically it started with a commercial sleigh style changing table my wife wanted for our first borne. Have a look at my projects and you”ll see what I mean. It seems to be a style I have adapted. The construction is pretty basic and straight forward. Thanks for your comment.

Just gorgeous! I like all parts, but the backs are nice…usually where dressers hide…yours dont.

Thanks, one of the things I love about this design is it makes it easy to incorperate a frame and panel back.
