Dresser I built out of alder. Chestnut stain and 3 coats of sprayepleted.d laquer. Drawers are dovetailed made out of poplar. The first photo is an in shop photo. The rest are the customersw home. The dresser measures 63w x 52”t x 18” d. The bed is a king with an opening at the foot for starage. All 22 drawers in the project are solid poplar and dovetailed with ball bearing slides. The nightstands also have a “breadboard” puulout. Was a big project and all started through an add I posted on craigslist. We have just signed a lease to move our shop to a new location. We will now have a showroom!!! God is amazing through challenges to bring forth his blessing and glory.

Nice dresser. Has production begun? Looks like I see a matching bedroom set in the near future.

Nice looking dresser , Brian.

Hi woodworm , 2nd picture …the dresser is fastened to the wall and the drawers are falling out of it : )

Looks well built. Good work.

-- Life is about choices. You can spend a lot of money on furniture and have really nice furniture; Or you can spend a lot on tools and have even more expensive, crappy furniture. I made my choice.
