love the look just wondering how easy the drawers open and close with the wood to slide on.

Don, great question. They slide very nicely but that takes a bit of effort. Sanded to 320 and used soap on rails.
Will post photo of how I did rail construction but don’t snicker at me.

Wax is also great for sliding drawers. Welcome, Schmitz! :-)

Great job! Reclaimed wood always seems to give even more character to great pieces!

Like the visual of your piece. Do you know what spieces of wood the thethreshing boards are? Did you mill the wood or have it milled since you mentioned not having a lot of tools? Wabi-Sabi

They told me that the threshing boards were 150 year old white pine. It’s very soft for the most part. I’m happy to send you a scrap board if you PM your mailing address.
You can see the photos of the rough material on my blog. They are about 2” thick and I left them their original thickness. All I did is rip them to the same approx width and then used my chop saw to cut lengths. I have a planer but didn’t use that at all. So basically all I did was rip, chop and sand.

I love projects using recycled lumber and your dresser is a stunning example. The colors and simplicity of design blend to make a very attractive piece. I cant wait to see your next project. Oh and welcome to LJs! You are an instant hit with a top three right off the bat.
