This is one of those cases where less, IS MORE.

That is simply beautiful! Great job

I love how you used a single board for each set of drawers, for a continuous grain line. Sharp!

Looks absolute perfect, like it very much. The black handles are the perfect choice for the walnut.
You really built it in one weekend?
Thank you for sharing

Wow!!! I love it!!

I’ve been wanting to build a dresser for myself and have been mulling over whether or not Walnut would look good for that purpose. (When searching for ideas, I kept finding pale wood) I’m glad to see it looks GORGEOUS.

This dresser is very clean and simple. It’s beautiful and so is the wood.

Very nice, classic design. Well done. I prefer undermount slides as they don’t show when the drawers are open and I find they run a bit smoother. What kind of finish did you use.

Continuous grained drawer fronts, bookmatched sides, a nice, mellow finish, and complementary pulls… what’s not to like?!

So you finished it last weekend, but when did you start it it?

Very nicely done!

Very nice work! Love the Walnut! I really like the handles too, the dresser has a very clean, contemporary but not over done, look. Now, if you can be there at around 5pm i can swing by to pick it up!

One question: Is the top solid or ply? Just wondering about the movement because of the mitered corners.

Wow, very sharp! Elegant. Great-looking mitered frame on the top, from the pics these look like some very nice-fitting drawers. Great job!
