This is a 6 drawer dresser I made for my granddaughter Haidyn Reese, born on June 30. There is a matching 4 in 1 crib that goes with it. The top, face frame, moldings, trim and drawer covers are made of solid cherry. The ends, bottom and center partition are made of 3/4” cherry plywood. The drawers are made of 1/2” baltic birch. The back and drawer bottoms are made of 1/4” masonite. If you go to my blog series you will find my shop drawings and cutting list for this dresser and the crib. I plan to put these in the bottom of the dresser so other generations can see them down the road. The dresser has 2 coats of Charles Neils Pre Color Conditioner, 2 coats of Zar Oil Based Wood Stain – Rosewood, 3 coats of General Arm R Seal Satin Urethane and 2 coats of paste wax applied with #0000 steel wool. You will notice that I have put a hidden compartment in one of the drawers. I thought my granddaughter might think it would be neat to have a secret compartment to hide things in some day. If you go to my blog series you can see in more detail how it works.
