Here is a dresser and chest of drawers that I just finished. They are made out of oak studs that I tore out of my house when I remodeled. They house was built in 1900. Some of the studs were 2×6 and some were 2×4. I tried to get quarter sawn grain whenever possible. They were a real pain to work with to try rip and plane and joint and match and glue and plane again but I’m now pleased with the outcome. I am very happy with the chest of drawers but I not sure if the dresser is proportioned quite right. I wanted to make a small set and I might have just went a little too small on the dresser, I’m not sure. Anyway some time later I plan to make a bed to match. I took the pieces to a local finish shop to get finished. They did a fantastic job!
