This is a tall chest for my wife. It is part of a bedroom set that I made for home. Construction is mortise and tenon joinery, solid red oak. Finish is Minwax red oak stain and Waterlox original. The panels were resawn from 5/4 oak, the rest was finished to 13/16. Drawer boxes are oak with 1/4” baltic birch bottoms. Another fun project to design and build.

I am normally not a fan of flat sawn oak but the design really complements it. I like!

much like eyekode, I am not a big fan of oak furniture, but I think your design is very complimentary to the grain. I like this quite a bit.

I’ll need A LOT more clamps before I can even think about starting! Would love to see pics of the rest of the set. You designed it yourself right? Would you be willing to share plans?
