This is a dresser that I built for my god-son. The design intails three different dresser designs built into one. The leg style off one, drawer configuration off another and last is the beaded face frame. Other items involved in the dresser were baltic birch drawer boxes, ball bearing drawer guides and oak knobs to match the dresser. Overall I think this project turned out to be a fun project to build

That is a really sharp looking dresser! I bet it WAS fun to build. Looks like its built to last.

Nice looking dresser. Never used many insert drawers or doors. I do a lot of built-ins and with shifting cabinets and houses they can come back and bite you in the butt. Thanks for posting.

Nice looking dresser, those have got to be the smallest oak drawer knobs I have never seen.

Handsome! Very nice beading detail. Looks like you did it the traditional way. Nice proportions. I have my sites on doing one in the future.

Looks great. I know it is no small feat to get all those drawers lined up perfectly!

custom, I am curious about one aspect on your dresser, In the hardwood flooring industy when you can see the areas thatt are lower in the springwood? we call it dishing out. I am wondering how you got the drawer fronts to have that effect. In floor sanding people consider this a bad thing, they want it perfectly flat. I love the effect it has on the dresser though. Did you use a soft pad under your sander to make that noticeable difference in grain smoothness?
