I FINALLY finished my dresser that I started in March on 2010. I used the plan in the Jan 2009 issue #188 of WOOD magazine. The dresser is Maple with several coats of Tried and True Varnish Oil. I learned a lot in this build. I have a six inch jointer. I did not want to have glued up drawer fronts. I also had a really nice 13” wide Birdseye Maple board for the top. I made the planer sled that was featured in FWW a wile ago. It worked like a charm. I used a locking drawer joints for the first time. I made tapered legs for the first time. I accidentally cut a bunch of biscuit slots on the wrong face of 2 of the legs. Only visible when the drawers were out, but it bugged me. So I planed some maple down to thickness and made biscuit shaped patches that make the slots pretty much dissapear. I posted a pic of the repair. My wife loves the look and storage of this dresser. Next I am going to build the matching wall hung mirror and bedside tables.
