This custom maple dresser was a commissioned piece for a customer in Lousiville, Kentucky. Hard maple carcass features sliding dovetail horizontals and verticals and splayed legs. Drawers are cock beaded and veneered with superb quality veneer from Berkshire Veneer. Hardware is clear glass pulls from Restoration Hardware.

Bob and Todd,

Absolutely amazing! The design, wood selection, and craftsmanship is extraordinary. I have to build a dresser and bed for my son and daughter in law. Any chance of sharing the design/ drawings?

Very nice detail. I especially like the dovetail joinery. Great work.

Gorgeous dresser. Do you, by any chance, like making drawers – I count 21 – and all look perfect. Great wood, design and execution. Love the finish as well. In fact, I can’t see anything that I don’t like. It should become a classic!
