my son asked me if i could build him a dresser. i had always wanted to chisel out a stack of lumber!

EDIT

A great piece of art that is also functional – the best of both worlds. Thanks for posting.

I’ve had an idea like this running in my mind for a few years. You may have inspired me to finally act on it.
Is it as heavy as one would think with the perimeter being solid wood?
Is your built as 3 different pieces and then stacked on top of each other? I’m trying to figure out what the lines in the side are about. The front drawers are sure hidden nicely…....don’t see those separations at all.
I was thinking about random lengths sticking off the drawer so there would be less of a pattern but I think I like your idea better of just 2 sizes alternated.

ohwoodeye, it is quite heavy.the top is also solid. its all one solid dresser-not 3 pieces stacked. the gaps in the sides that you are seeing- i set up the sides to have the gaps to look like gaps made by stickers.i lined them up with the drawer tops and bottoms.i felt an additional gap near the top drawer wouldnt look right.
i was going to go with many random lengths, but decided to KISS this one. the cool thing is that with the drawer runners waxed it didnt need any handles to pull the drawers out.
