This is a dresser that I built for my Father In Law for his birthday. The exterior is solid Quartersawn White Oak that I was fortunate enough to buy locally from an individual that shares a passion for Mission Style Furniture and has his own saw mill and kiln. The interior of this dresser is made out of Birch plywood and holds a secret compartment within. The side panel of the dresser hinges open to reveal a hidden gun safe that slides out to the side. It is made to hold six rifles in horizontal racks behind the drawers. I did not get any pictures of the gun safe at this time but should get some in the near future. I still need to finish coat the exterior and add the gun holders which is why I don’t have pics of that yet, I was rushed for time so that I could present it to him this past Saturday while all the family was gathered. This was my first big project in many years and my first attempt at Mission style furniture. I had a blast building it and can’t wait to start my next project, if the wife will allow me that much time in the shop again.
