I made this for the lady who works for me on the occasion of the birth of her 3rd child, the second in 2 years. The last time I made her a similar chest with a changing table top. This one matches, except without the top. Red pad ply with solid red oak face frame. Minwax Red Mohogany stain, with several coats of spray shellac. Full extension drawer slides. The top is plywood wrapped with a solid oak frame. The back is 1/4 ply into a rabbet. Thanks for looking!

Nicely done! Great color choice. She won’t have to every worry about those drawers racking in their frame.
