Well I have always wanted to build my own bedroom suit. This dresser is part of it. My wife said she wanted something that was western styled and a bit rustic. After some thinking this is what I came up with. It is solid pine with roller drawer slides. I also used horse shoes for drawer pulls. I stained it with red mahagony stain, then put 2 coats of gloss polyurathane on the entire dresser, except for the top which received 3 coats. It is mostly 1×6 and 1×8 pine boards. I used 1/4 in panelling I had laying around for the drawer bottoms. It is all glued and screwed together…Oh did I mention it is SUPER HEAVY. I wanted to not to ever worry about setting anything to heavy on the top…..so it has a sold 2×4 framed construction….must be the engineer in me. Once it was completed and looking back on it, I am sure I could have lightened it up a bit. But hey if I ever need a large block to set a pickup on, I can always resort to this…. Feel free to ask if you have any questions.
