Cedar dresser we are just getting done with, This dresser is a 6 drawer and 34” tall and 60” long and about 22” deep.
We use natural edge cedar slabs to face the drawers they are a full 1” thick fronts.
Top is made of 2” thick natural edge cedar slabs, we leave as much of the natural edge even in the glued up joints to add a little charactor.

In this picture we also have a cedar curio cabinet, a cedar towel or coat tree, and a cedar vanity
We been busy beavers.

Wow! Great looking dresser! I am going to try and make some rustic furniture this summer for myself and I was wondering how you have the sides of the dresser attached? I was thinking about trying to have them float in some dadoes to accommodate for wood movement. Thanks!

That looks great! How do you cut the V-notch into the vertical log corner trim pieces? In other words, how do you turn a log into a outside corner trim molding? I gotta’ know!
