Cherry and hickory dresser.
Breadboard ends, face frame and legs are hickory – drawer fronts, side panels and top is cherry.
Got the drawer pulls really cheap off ebay. I think they really make the piece.
Put together with a lot of TLC and F-bombs.
This fine piece of furniture now holds my dirty underwear….

Lots of work but well worth it.
Drawers must have taken a while.

You are absolutely right. The hardware is a great enhancement.

That’s a very pretty dresser. I love the hardware and the wood.
