The dresser that goes with the bed

is completed. White Oak, gray stain, General Finish HP topcoat, semi-gloss, wax. Joinery is mortise/tenon, tongue/groove, dovetails and a couple pocket screws. Top is floating with blocks in grooves in top rails. Drawer slides are dovetailed slides. Tenons in corner uprights are through tenons. Dust panels under all drawers.
Roughly 64”W x 46”H x 22”D … Big and Heavy for sure. Sorry for the couple sideways pics .. don’t know how to fix.

I really like that design and color, came out great. Dovetails look great too, how’d you cut them?

Thanks for the comments. Dovetails were cut using a router and a Leigh DR4 jig

great looking dresser – I like the extra size/drawers – very substantial
For this pics just double click them on your desktop, (by default they will open in Picture Viewer or what ever program opens your jpeg), then rotate with left or right arrows then exit and it will save the right way up :)
