This is the matching dresser to go with the crib here.

Again, thanks goes to fellow Lumberjocks Jeff and David for their inspiration and advice along the way.

The construction is Oak frame, with plywood sides. The finish is Red Mahogany.

The snazzy additions to this build are the “secret drawers.” The last picture in this series is the reveal.

Thanks for looking!

Very nice looking build Randy,fit and finish look top notch ! I really like the hidden drawer feature and it does not distract from the over all appearance like some designs often do ! Great job !

Great looking dresser. I like the frame and panel doors, the dental moulding detail along the top and of course the secret drawer.
