Daughter needed a dresser/changing table for Grandbaby #4 to match a set she had bought years ago so… My first bow front dresser. A little taller than a standard dresser and she wanted doors under for baby stuff so kind of a dresser with only two drawers. Cut the drawers on the bandsaw rather than laminated. Used curly oak on the fronts. Standard cabinet door construction. General finishes gel stain with seal coat underneath…a lot of sanding area. A lot of hours and design on the fly due to the bow front, but started with the box and went from there. Thanks.

Very impressive and inspiring, so much so you got me interested in trying a bow front piece of my own.
