I started this project a year before I got married. My intention was to have it done well before I got married. Well…. as many of you probably know, it’s really hard to work on your own stuff when you have paying work sitting right next to it. That being said, I think it was about a year after we got married that I finally finished it. Construction includes: Solid walnut exterior with raised panel ends, and solid pine interior with dovetailed drawers. All the drawers run on solid wood frames inside the cabinet. Hope you enjoy !

That looks great, walnut has such a nice grain pattern and you captured it well.

I love walnut projects that don’t attempt to hide wild grain or sapwood. Congratulations on a beautiful build.

Beautiful walnut. I love that you did raised panels on a dresser, you don’t see a lot of that.
